Dennis Greene believes that midfielder Kyle Dixon is set for a return to York Street.

The 19-year-old enjoyed an impressive loan spell with the Pilgrims, but he missed Saturday’s bizarre 4-0 defeat at Harrogate Town after being recalled by parent club Notts County.

Dixon was an unused substitute in the Magpies’ 3-2 League One home defeat to Shrewsbury, and now manager Greene hopes he can get the youngster playing for United again as soon as possible.

“He should be back,” Greene said.

“He’s just covering for a couple of weeks as they’ve got a couple of players injured.

“He’s just going to be back there for a couple more weeks.”

Dixon - who has also had a loan spell with Grantham Town this season - admits he sees his long-term future with County, but says he has relished his time with United.

“I’m enjoying it (at Boston) and I want to put my stamp on the team,” Dixon told The Standard.

Dixon has made five appearances for United to date this campaign.

Meanwhile, Greene said he would assess the club’s injury situation at training last night before deciding whether he needs to try to bring in more bodies.

United finished Saturday’s match at Harrogate with seven men, with Jamie McGhee, Rene Steer and Stefan Galinski all picking up injuries.
