Ex-PSG striker Luyindula not far from best form for NYRB

Peguy Luyindula feels he is very close to producing his best for New York Red Bull.

The 33-year old French striker joined the Red Bulls last month and has been decent in his first two MLS appearances - both which have been starts.

Luyindula, who teed up Thierry Henry for the winner in the 2-1 victory over Philadelphia Union on the weekend, also missed a couple of gilt-edged chances but is of the belief that he is extremely close to finding his top form.

"I'm almost very good but clearly I have to get three, four more games to feel plenty of my strength and my capacity because I feel a little bit of wearing [down] at the end of the action," Luyindula told MLSsoccer.com.

"If I'm running 30, 40 yards, at the end of this run I'm a little bit tired so in like three, four games, I'm going to be good. I'm going to be able to make those runs and then be very aware in front of goal."

He added: "I have to be more aware to finish. I always finish those [chances], but I'm not afraid of [missing].

"I'm not worried about this thing. When you're a striker, the most difficult to score is the first one and then the first one comes and it's easy [after that]."
