Kuyt Confident Of Torres Linkup

Dirk Kuyt is confident that a potential partnership with Fernando Torres can yield goals should they be given more chances. The Dutch international was given a rare start alongside the Spaniard in their goalless draw with Utrecht on Thursday in the Europa League, but they struggled to create chances. Kuyt and Torres showed some nice link-up play in stages however, and the 29-year-old felt that should they can score goals together should manager Roy Hodgson give them the opportunity. He also backed the under-fire Torres to get over what has been a considerable dip in form by his standards and bounce back in style. "Tonight we created a good chance together," he said. "Against Sunderland and West Brom it worked well, so I think we can play well together but tonight wasn't the best game for us or the team. Matter of time "It's just a matter of time for Fernando. I said that after the Sunderland game when people were talking about him not scoring, but he still provided two assists. "Tonight he missed a chance, but he is human and can miss chances like everyone else. I'm sure his goals will come." Reflecting on the game, where he returned to the club that gave him his first senior contract, Kuyt felt that they had done well to earn a point from their opponents. "It was a really tough game. It was difficult from the start. We didn't play our best game but we will keep fighting. "We created some good chances but so did they, so I think we have to be happy with a 0-0. "We can take confidence from this and we will keep fighting. I think the good thing from tonight is that we got a clean sheet. An away draw in Europe isn't too bad and we have four points from two games, so we just have to keep going and win on Sunday."
