Tonight’s match won’t be an easy one — not after a rough-and-tumble match on Wednesday — but all we need is a little good news in the defense and we might just be ready to go.
That’s right: facing Portland Timbers has never been the easiest thing, even when Jason Kreis’s 2013 RSL side laid absolute and utter waste to the team. It’s not easier now, as they fight for a chance at the playoffs.
With Jamison Olave suspended, will a previously injured Justen Glad be thrust back into the limelight? And what of Chris Schuler, who has yet to start for RSL since returning? These are the questions we’ll have answered tonight.
