Schmid guarantees a win on Saturday as well as explains his thought process regarding the changes to practice and lineup selection.

Sigi Schmid gave Softy specifics about injuries and playing status today during his near weekly show on KJR. He addressed Obafemi Martins' availability, the club's need for players being at 100% and a couple players that played themselves out of the lineup who may be reentering it as well.

"Oba's back in town but he will not be able to play this Saturday," Schmid said to to the afternoon host. The statements about the other injured starters were very similar to what was said post-training.

When asked about changes being made to training or game approach Sigi admitted that some of the players used early in the season were not at 100%. The coaching staff is fixing that through more intense practices and resting players that are injured. He also mentioned "a couple guys" that were benched for their lack of intensity and that they may be coming back to the lineup.

Softy asked "Who would those players be?"

Sigi Schmid replied that Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Mauro Rosales have stepped up their practice performances and sub appearance (for Rosales) that could earn themselves returns to the XI.

He then ended guaranteeing a victory over the Revolution.

Schmid appears weekly with Softy, usually on Thursday afternoons.
