Andre Boucaud insists he is fully committed to helping Kettering Town get into the Blue Square Premier play-offs.
The 24-year-old Trinidad and Tobago midfielder admitted he had spent a couple of days with MK Dons after the Coca-Cola League One promotion chasers made an approach for him following the Poppies' 2-1 home defeat to Oxford United last week.

He missed the 2-0 win at Weymouth but returned for Mark Cooper's men in the 0-0 draw at York City on Tuesday night.

Boucaud has been in superb form all season and, while he was pleased with the interest from Milton Keynes, he is determined to help Kettering with their final push.

"After the Oxford game MK Dons came in for me, which was good but it has come at a really bad stage of the season," Boucaud said.

"So I went down there for a couple of days to have a look at how things work.

"But I am here at Kettering and trying to get us into the play-offs.
Maybe at the end of the season something will happen.

"But right now I am doing a job for Kettering.

"I am pleased with my own performances this season but most of all I am pleased with what we have done as a team.

"When I came here I just said I was going to work hard and try to prove I am capable of playing at a higher level.

"But the situation right now is that I am fully committed to what we are doing at Kettering."

The goalless draw at KitKat Crescent on Tuesday saw the play-off picture become clearer for Poppies as they now lie four points behind Kidderminster Harriers having played the same number of games.

And Boucaud firmly believes they can continue to surprise the division and squeeze into the top five.

"We are in a great position. At the start of the season no-one would have thought we would be here," he added.

"We have done better than everyone thought we would and I believe we can be in there at the end.

"We went top of the league earlier in the season and you don't do that by luck. We are doing well and we want to keep it going."
