Win or lose the Rapids will technically still be alive after this weekend. Of course realistically we've been eliminated since the end of May. Colorado is back in Houston tomorrow night for their first of their last five game. Game time tomorrow is 6:30pm and Fleming and 'Celo will have the call on altitude.
OUT: D Michael Harrington; D Axel Sjoberg; F Dominique Badji; F Keven Doyle
ONE YELLOW FROM SUSPENSION: D James Riley (3 games for good behavior reduction); D Jared Watts; M Sam Cronin; M Lucas Pittinari
TWO YELLOWS FROM SUSPENSION: D Marc Burch; F Kevin Doyle
Houston has 5 players injured and one suspended. We're missing a couple of key players (Sjoberg and Doyle) which means this game probably isn't going to be much of an improvement on what we've seen recently. My guess at the XI:
But I'm probably being optimistic.
Strategic Consideration: Just try to be entertaining
Prediction: 2-0 loss. I don't see a lot of scoring chances lately and even less with Doyle out. So I expect to come away pretty disappointed from this one.
