Ish wish will come says Mowbray.

MISFIRING Ishmael Miller has been backed by Albion manager Tony Mowbray and skipper Jonathan Greening.

Miller is still looking for his first goal of the season having failed to hit the target in the defeat by Hull City.

He has come under fire from pockets of supporters in recent weeks, notably during the victory at Middlesbrough, but both Mowbray and Greening feel he will start scoring if he continues to persevere.

Mowbray said: "He's got to keep going and persevering.

"He had enough chances to score a goal so he is disappointed once again.

It will happen for him.

"Let's hope he's the sort of striker who scores in bursts so when he gets the first one he scores a lot on the bounce.

"He's eager and determined but the bottom line is he's got to stick one in the net when the chances come along and I'm sure he will soon."

Greening has also urged the fans to be patient with the 21-year-old.

"His time will come and he will get a few goals," he said.

"He just has to be patient because for strikers once one goal comes they usually score quite a lot.

"He needs to get the first goal and then get on the goal trail."
