Boyce targets United return

The right-back missed 11 weeks after originally sustaining the

injury in October and this is the second time he has been sidelined

since making his comeback from the problem. Boyce is now targeting

next weekend’s visit of Manchester United for his comeback.

“Fingers crossed, the initial stage of the recovery is going well

and I’m aiming for the United game, if not then definitely

Manchester City the weekend after,” he told the Wigan Evening Post.

“Thankfully, there’s not as much pressure to race back because it’s

FA Cup this weekend. “The main priority for me is making sure I’m

fit for the final third of the season.”
