Former Manchester City and Southampton striker Bradley Wright-Phillips was delighted with his hat-trick for New York Red Bulls in midweek.

Wright-Phillips struck in the 4-0 win over Houston Dynamo.

"I've been getting in those areas some I should've scored some I was in unlucky. [Wednesday] they just went in," he told the New York Post.

"You have to be there to miss them, and score them. You take criticism for missing them and you get credit for scoring them, so I keep getting in there. … I think I owed Red Bull Arena a goal. I've had some chances and I felt I could've scored, so it was nice to score at home.''
