Kyle Dixon says he is back to his best after overcoming a frustrating ankle injury.

The midfielder - currently on-loan at Boston United from Notts County - picked up the Man of the Match Champagne following the Pilgrims’ goalless draw with Chorley in the Vanarama North on Saturday.

“I feel fit and firing. It’s not like I’m going forward and can’t get back, I just feel like I’m me again, like the old me,” said a smiling Dixon, who admits he struggled during the first few weeks of his loan spell this campaign.

“I really feel like I can play a full 90 minutes again.”

“The first month, I said I wasn’t at it. I was half a yard off.

“But I’m just getting back into it now and, hopefully, the performances will start coming.

“There’s always more to come, you’re never an accomplished player. I’ve still got more to learn and a lot to prove.

“Hopefully, I’ll do my best and this is a step in the right direction.”

Dixon says he feels that he is playing for two different clubs every time he puts his boots on.

He admits that succeeding with United is the only way he can extend his Magpies contract, which runs until the end of the season.

“I’m here now and doing it for Boston, the staff, the chairman and the fans - everyone’s great around here and really nice to me.

“But I’m doing it for both clubs.

“I want to do well for Boston, and hopefully that will put me in good stead at Notts.

“I’m striving and, hopefully, I can get a new contract there - but I have to prove myself here first.

“I want to be in both gaffers’ minds.”

United travel to face Leamington in Vanarama North action on Saturday.

Kick off will be at 3pm.
