Durakovic backing Kewell to hit Melbourne Victory scoring form

Melbourne Victory coach Mehmet Durakovic is supremely confident that star attacker Harry Kewell will begin to score regularly for the club.

The former Leeds United, Liverpool and Galatasaray forward has netted just once (from the penalty spot) in nine A-League appearances for the Victory but Durakovic feels the positions he is getting himself into will soon start to bring goals on a consistent basis.

"The last month and a half, Harry's been a different class," said Durakovic. "He's getting very fit, getting to know the players and Archie (Thompson) and Carlos (Hernandez) well.

"Everybody is starting to click the way I want these guys to play. I'm very happy with the way he's playing. The way our forwards our playing. The way our midfielders are playing.

"It will come. The goals will come. As long as we're creating chances and Harry's chances will come.

"And sooner or later he will hit the back of the net and nothing will stop him."
