Taking on Toronto

Sorry for getting this out a little later today, went to the Kevin Hartman book signing in Lee's Summit tonight. Had a good time there. Anyways, the Wizards are back home at Community America Ballpark to take on the Canadians, Toronto FC. The Wizards come in off the 2-0 win over LA, while Toronto comes in off of a home draw with top of the table Columbus. Both teams need the win tomorrow to keep their playoff hopes alive. Each team will also likely have their eyes on the game on FSC tomorrow night when DC takes on LA, as they'll battle for the playoffs.

The lineup for this coming weekend looks to be the same as it was against LA last week. Even though Aaron Hohlbein is healthy, Tyson Wahl will again partner Jimmy Conrad in the center of defense.
Leathers - Conrad - Wahl - Harrington
Gomez - Jewsbury - Arnaud - Espinoza
Wolff - Thompson

PREDICTION - If the Wizards want to make the playoffs, they need to get another 3 points at home against the team at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Toronto is getting healthier, and could have Carlos Ruiz and Chad Barrett available to start, along with Danny Dichio coming off the bench. Conrad and Wahl will have their hands full with the TFC forwards, while Jewsbury will have to deal with Amado Guevara. Being at home, this is a game KC has to have.

KC - 2 (Arnaud, Gomez)
TFC - 1 (Ruiz)
