RSL will field a largely young group of players for the start of tonight's match against New York Red Bulls, general manager Garth Lagerwey said during an interview on ESPN700 this afternoon. A more veteran group should emerge at the half or sometime thereafter.
He also indicated that Robbie Findley and Alvaro Saborio were both likely to see their first minutes of preseason; Findley has been working to gain fitness as he shifts into a March to December schedule, while Saborio has been away on international duty.
Additionally, on-trial goalkeeper Josh Saunders will see minutes as Kreis and Lagerwey look to solidify the goalkeeping slot, as will midfielder Khari Stephenson, who may yet find himself offered a contract.
