Can The Rapids Make It 6 Of 6 At Home?

Sporking KC is in town

Another quick turnaround this week as KC comes into Commerce City tomorrow night.  They're on a bad run of results that was started with the win we got in KC a few weeks ago.  Since then they haven't won and they've had trouble scoring.  Meanwhile the Rapids haven't lost since that win in KC and have found their scoring touch.  Let's hope those streaks continue tomorrow.  Kickoff is at 7pm so the tailgate starts at 4 and the game will be on Altitude for those who can't make it.

Player Availability:
OUT: D Eric Miller (groin); D Sean St. Ledger (knee); M Marco Pappa (knee)
UNAVAILABLE: D Joseph Greenspan (Navy duty)

KC is only down two players.  nothing new on our injury front, though Miller said during his C38 podcast interview on Saturday that he thought he'd be available for this one.  Doesn't look like it though.

Starting XI Prediction:

With Burch having come into Saturday's game nursing a bit of a knock I expect Hairston to get the start over him just to give him a rest.  Otherwise the same lineup as Saturday.

Prediction: 1-0 win, goal by Jones.  KC is struggling and is on short rest.  We're also on short rest so I think thi game will be close but Jones carries us once more.
