Man Utd boss Moyes keen to see Rooney go on scoring run

Manchester United boss David Moyes is hoping to see Wayne Rooney kick on after his goalscoring comeback against Crystal Palace.

Rooney struck a superb free-kick in the 2-0 win.

Asked if Rooney's goal could prove to be significant, Moyes said: "I think that is right. To get him back, it has been so stop-start through pre-season, to get him to this situation, that was a big moment for him.

"It was a great free-kick and I am sure he has gained confidence. The crowd have given him a great lift and hopefully he can repay them with plenty of goals. He needs a period to get back to what he does best."
