Real Salt Lake hasn’t won in five matches, which means tonight’s match against San Jose Earthquakes just got a big push behind it — especially as it marks the last game in an extensive mostly-home stand.

- Expect a relatively full-strength lineup for RSL, with the only current starter as Luke Mulholland listed in the injury report. He’s probable with a knee concern.
- Jamison Olave is also listed as probable with a calf concern, which sounds like a familiar tune to be playing.
- Sunny remains out after suffering a facial fracture — he underwent successful surgery and will be out an estimated six to eight weeks.
- Emery Welshman remains out because of a hip flexor injury. He recently underwent surgery and will undergo another surgery in about six weeks.
RSL XI: Rimando; Beltran, Maund, Glad, Phillips; Beckerman, Mulholland, Morales; Martinez, Movsisyan, Plata
(W)hen he plays that position he does things differently than our other number 10's that we have. We're able to get in behind on those runs from the midfield which cause a defense a lot of problems. Jordan is learning that in areas where he was successful it is tougher for him to be successful. He's having to play quicker. But he is learning very fast and his ceiling is really high. He's getting better and better each time out there.
