Patrick Mullins returns from injury, looks to contribute for D.C. United

Noah Ziegler | The MLS’ worst team needs someone who can score. A simple assumption, but it is a critical one when D.C. United have only scored nineteen goals this year. They’ve also played twenty-four matches. With basic math, that’s less than a goal per game. Couple their offensive struggles with the fact they also have one of the worst defenses in the entire league, their position in the MLS standings seems, well, reasonable. But not all hope is lost for United. After a knee injury that sidelined him for a few months, D.C. striker Patrick Mullins is set to return to the field in hopes to reinvigorates a dull D.C. attack. Instant impact since acquired After heading down the East coast to the Capital City from New York City FC, Mullins made a significant impact on the black and red. He scored eight times in just fourteen appearances last season but has failed to find the back of the net in his limited time this season. He finally broke back into the D.C. United team as he was subbed on during United’s 4-0 loss to Minnesota United FC. He didn’t score, but he did get three shots off in his short time on the field. Eager to return Mullins, now twenty-five-years-old, spoke to DCUnited.com about his return to play. He said he had never been sidelined for a long time due to injury, so it was a new experience for him. “[I’ve had] no injury experience, so it was tough,” Mullins said. “You're not with the team as much as...
