Six players have scored a late winner against Sporting Kansas City while with the Seattle Sounders. Nelson Valdez did it most recently in the playoff win. It started with Fucito and includes Parke, Neagle, Barrett, and Traore. Entering this midweek match, it is important to remember this history. Seattle is a heavy underdog. They are weakened, weary and near the bottom of the standings. A late winner may be necessary. Sporting is the better team, right now.
JOEtv is carrying the 5:30 PM match, which is not on radio.
Ted Unkel is the center referee.
Injuries and Suspensions
Joevin Jones is suspended due to his two yellow cards in the Chicago loss. Seth Sinovic is a single yellow card from accumulation suspension. Ilie Sanchez and Graham Zusi are two yellows from their accumulation suspensions. Dwyer already served an accumulation suspension. That KC is so quick to these shouldn’t be a surprise. Sporting will be without Erik Palmer-Brown due to a call to the US U20s. Diego Rubio is out due to an ACL injury. Seth Sinovic is questionable for the Sporks. Seattle Sounders are without Roman Torres and Henry Wingo due to injury. Osvaldo Alonso, Aaron Kovar and Nouhou are all questionable.
