Fit-again Boylan eyeing Wembley

U's striker Lee Boylan
Boylan admits he is now feeling nervous ahead of the play-off final

Cambridge United's Lee Boylan says he is fit and wants a starting berth in Sunday's Blue Square Premier play-off final against Exeter at wembley.

The striker, 29, was sidelined for some of the season run-in with a hamstring injury picked up against Torquay.

But he told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I'm back playing and was back training before the first play-off game.

"We've got about 23 or 24 players in the squad fighting for 11 places and I'm working hard to get in."

He added: "We're now training to get to the level we need to be at because Wembley is a big pitch and demanding on your legs."

Some Premier League players haven't even played at Wembley which does make it more appealing

Boylan admits he is already feeling the pressure ahead of Sunday's match against Exeter.

He said: "If anyone says they won't be nervous, they're lying.

"It's a one-off game at Wembley, the rewards are massive so I'm going to be nervous but it's whether you can cope with that and I feel I can so I'm looking forward to it.

"Some Premier League players haven't even played at Wembley which does make it more appealing."

However, he admitted competition for places in manager Jimmy Quinn's starting line-up would be tough.

"We've got about 23 or 24 players in the squad fighting for 11 places and I'm working hard to get in."
