Vuckic weaved his way through the Crew defence in the closing stages of last night's friendly before scoring with a well-taken finish.
And afterwards he told the Evening Chronicle: "That was for them.
"They have stuck with us throughout the tour and travelled everywhere.
"They were really behind us.
"It was a great feeling for me as it was my first goal of pre-season. I have come close.
"I can certainly offer the team this if they want it. It gives me confidence to push on again."
