Kenny Miller hopes his second goal for Vancouver Whitecaps can put him into a goalscoring ‘purple patch’.
The Scotland international joined the ‘Caps from Cardiff City in July and has so far managed to score just two goals in nine MLS appearances with the second coming in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Colorad Rapids.
Miller has taken some time to adapt to his new environment and now he is looking to up the ante in regards to hitting the back of the net for the Vancouverites.
“Speak to any striker, and they’ll say you go through purple patches where goals seem to happen and balls fall to you in the box,” Miller said.
“Whereas, when you’re struggling for goals, things seem to elude you in the box. If you go front, it goes back, and if you go back, it goes front.
“Let’s hope after Sunday night, getting a goal, and with that goal for the national team (against Macedonia on September 11), that can kick me off for the last four games and into the playoffs.”
