RECORD signing Liam Boyce is on the road to recovery after rupturing his ACL in a pre-season fixture against Shrewsbury Town this season.
Boyce joined Burton Albion in a club-record transfer deal from Ross County in June on a three-year deal. The 26-year-old was the top scorer in the Scottish Premiership last season, bagging 23 league goals.
His last outing in a Burton shirt came in the penultimate pre-season fixture against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday 29 July, where he fell awkwardly causing his ACL to rupture.
Speaking last week, Nigel Clough said: "He's getting close to joining in. He will join in part of the sessions. He's been doing the warm up and a little bit of light ball work. You can only do a certain amount of mind-numbing running round training on your own but everybody will know when you're coming back from that sort of injury you have to do it. He's now desperate just to join in with the rest of the lads."
