The former Rangers striker is the top flight's all-time leading marksman but he does not have the best memories of facing his Parkhead rivals.
The 18-cap former Scotland striker made his debut for Kilmarnock against the Hoops in May 2001 but since then he has scored just once in 20 meetings.
His four-a-half-year stint with the Ibrox men saw him net an incredible 101 goals but there was frustration too as he was often overlooked for Old Firm clashes.
But, after scoring the first strike of his second spell with the Ayrshiremen against St Mirren on Wednesday night, he is hoping to get himself on target again when John Brown's Dens Park side visit.
A win would secure a place in the upper half of the SPL table and guarantee them another match with Neil Lennon's league leaders.
Boyd told Press Association Sport: "If Killie could get into the top six, it would be massive considering the players they have lost, the finances of the club and even the clubs that are below them. Your Dundee Uniteds, your Aberdeens - they are spending a lot more money that Kilmarnock are.
"The most important thing is to get in that top six. Once you do that, you can enjoy the rest of the season. It's good to have those games against Celtic and the other teams who have played well during the season.
"If we do manage to clinch the top-six slot, we would look forward to that but we have to take care of Dundee first."
