Crew v. Revs: Down 1 with 90 minutes to go
It looks like Wingert will not play due to a balky ankle. Szetela will come off the bench to make a start. Sanneh will be pushing forward into the defensive midfield and Oughton will be dropping back in the wingback spot. The Crew have been tough this year and are at home. They settled down in the second half of last weeks game. Paule has had another week to shake off the rust of inaction and the cobwebs from his concussion. The key will be Sanneh in the midfield. If he is able to distribute well by linking the backline and midfield, then the Crew will be able to apply pressure and score goals. I think that he will be able to do that and the midfield will power the Crew to victory and advance to face D.C. next week at CCS.
Update: 1-1, a long, cold offseason.
