Sigi Schmid indicated that Seattle Sounders FC is moving towards a Saturday schedule with the First XI. That means today's match should be heavy on the players who are most likely to get significant time in the regular season. But, Clint is still over in Fulham (not playing again) so there are questions as to whether Andy Rose, Tristan Bowen or Lamar Neagle get the longer look due to that absence.
The Charleston Battery are taking their defensive mid/right back Micheal Azira back for this game and just started training. For a USL PRO side they do have a solid core of veterans though so they will not be an easy opponent.
