The 25-year old Englishman provided the assist for Will Bruinâ€™s goal in the weekendâ€™s 1-0 victory over Montreal Impact which came just a week after he contributed to the 4-0 season-opening win over New England Revolution.
Former Debry County, West Bromwich Albion and Doncaster Rovers forward Barnes has formed a good attacking partnership with Bruin and although he is yet to hit the back of the net, he is pleased with the way he is performing for the Texan outfit.
â€śIâ€™m confident in my ability to score goals, and I showed it preseason,â€ť he told MLSsoccer.com.
â€śThe teamâ€™s doing well, so it doesnâ€™t bother me. Iâ€™m there to score goals, but I think my general play and what Iâ€™m offering to the team with my play is worth its weight in gold as well.â€ť
As for his relationship and understanding with Bruin, scorer of three goals already this term, Barnes added: â€śI think we actually look for each other quite a lot.
â€śI donâ€™t think you can really find many times when Will and I are more than 20-25 yards off each other, if that. We have a good understanding. Weâ€™ve got the ground work set, and weâ€™re going onwards and upwards.â€ť
