Wizards to Take on Ex-Wizards

Well, not quite, but with 4 players on Chivas, and their coach being former Kansas City Wizards, it certainly seems like it. There will be plenty of old faces on the opposite side of the ball tomorrow, as Chivas has former Wizards Carey Talley, Shavar Thomas, Alex Zotinca, and recently acquired Sasha Victorine, along with the greatest Wizard of all time, Preki on the Chivas USA bench. The Wizards will also see a Chivas team that is actually starting to get healthier. Earlier this season when they played, KC ran into what was a make shift squad for Chivas, now they've got guys like Ante Razov and Alecko Eskandarian back.

As for the Wizards, Chance Myers is recovering from mono, and Jack Jewsbury is out due to yellow card accumulation. Other than that, the Wizards should have the same lineup as the last two weeks. It looks like Kurt Morsink will take up the central midfield spot next to Davy Arnaud with Jewsbury missing this game.

Leathers - Conrad - Wahl - Harrington
Gomez - Arnaud - Espinoza
Wolff - Thompson

PREDICTION - Getting at least a point in LA would do wonders for the Wizards' playoff chances. Stealing all three would be even better. Sadly the Wizards haven't exactly been a stellar road team this season, only winning once on road, in their first road game of the season. Maybe I'm looking on the negative side of that, though, and the fact that we've only won once on the road means we'll finally break through... We'll see, but I have my doubts.

KC - 1 (Wolff)
Chivas - 1 (Razov)
