The United States forward is expected to play his way back to full sharpness, following his loan switch from the Seattle Sounders.
"Clint's a fit boy and that comes pretty quickly," said Meulensteen.
"The more minutes and games he gets under his belt the quicker that will all come. It won't take long for him to be right back up there."
"If he could have got his head on one of those crosses in the second half it would have been good for his confidence," said Meulensteen.
"He's just got to keep working, but that's his character and that's exactly what we know he will do."
