Mullins said

We've created opportunities, we've played some good soccer. What we want is more of our personalities to come out on the field and to make impactful plays at impactful times. I think that's the one thing we can look at ourselves and say, 'I know we an do that.'

In the coach's words

Patrick has been a guy for me that every time he plays, he gives us everything he has. That's appreciated. He makes intelligent runs, he gets behind the back four and he's on the end of things with two goals.
