"I want to build on that and, if I keep scoring, I'm going to stay in the team," he said.
"The gaffer has showed that he is playing 4-4-2 now and hopefully I can stay a part of the two up front."
Boyd has started four out of five SPL games this season but missed out on the 4-2 Old Firm derby win at Celtic Park and is keen to ensure he does not sit out any more big games.
He added: "I want to play in every game that I can and I was obviously disappointed to miss out on an Old Firm game.
"But I can't have any complaints if the team wins. It's up to me to get my head down, work hard and get back in the team.
"That's what I've done and I've managed to get two goals."
