Wizards Continue Home Stand

The Wizards will continue their 4 game home stand tomorrow night against New England. New England is coming in to the game having been soundly beaten 4-0 last Thursday in Chicago. Already without Taylor Twellman and Steve Ralston, the Revolution lost Jeff Larentowicz in the 7th minute to a red card. All three will now miss the game on Wednesday. It also looks likely that the Revolution will be missing defender Chris Albright for the defender as well.

Chance Myers is off the injury list again, but will he replace Jonathan Leathers as right back tomorrow remains to be seen. With the Wizards playing again on Saturday against Houston, I wouldn't be surprised to see Coach Onalfo switch up his starters a bit. I figure Scott Sealy will get a chance to start tomorrow in place of Ivan Trujillo who rests in preparation for the game against Houston.
Myers - Wahl - Conrad - Harrington
Jewsbury - Marinelli - Morsink
Sealy - Lopez

The Revolutions, injury woes are going to cost them tomorrow night. Without Twellman and Ralston, the offense is going to struggle, and without Albright, their defense is going to be vulnerable. Even with all that, the Wizards have two less days of rest, as the Revolution played on Thursday. It'll be a close game I think. Steve Nicol isn't going to allow the Revolution to play as bad as they did on Thursday in Chicago.

KC - 2 (Marinelli, Lopez)
NE - 1 (Cristman)
