- Tony Beltran is out because of yellow-card accumulation. It’s worth wondering if any of his yellow cards aren’t for breaking up play around the midfield line to prevent a counterattacking opportunity.
- 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 has yet to appear for Real Salt Lake in a professional match; he has played for Real Monarchs and RSL in preseason.
We're going to look at the later chances, but there were other chances before. I thought we got a little bit sloppy with the choices that we made to finish out the game. I think we could have done a better job killing the game off. We should never have been that stretched at the end of the game. You learn from it, you move on. I think we are playing some of the best soccer we have ever seen here. But we are finding that one way to make a mistake and we are paying for it.
