Reunited Reds take to San Jose

Posted on 28 May 2010 by ASN Staff

Saturday’s match against the San Jose Earthquake will be a great test to see how The Reds are able to perform when they have all of their squad reunited.

Dwayne De Rosario and Julian de Guzman will be returning from international duty, while Nana Attakora and Maksim Usanov should be prepared to return to duty on the pitch.

The Reds (4-4-1) have yet to register a victory on the road during the current MLS campaign, but the return of a full bench and a full weeks rest after playing 8 games 27 days could give TFC a boost for this road match.

The Earthquake (5-2-1) have won their last 3 home dates after starting the season with a loss and draw at Buck Shaw Stadium. It is also impressive that the last time they allowed the opposing team to find the back of the net was April 24.

Saturday will see the return of TFCs Nick Garcia to the San Jose pitch, where he was the team captain before being shipped off to BMO field, but he will need to be in top form to neutralize the Earthquake’s Chris Wondolski, who has 5 goals in his last 6 games.

This match is expected to be a defensive struggle, with Preki’s defense first approach and San Jose’s ability to shut down opposing offense.
