Sporting KC to Host Dynamo (UPDATED with time)

Sporting KC's opponent for the conference final on Sunday has been decided. The Houston Dynamo defeated the Philadelphia Union 1-0 tonight in Houston to win their series 3-1 on aggregate. The Dynamo now travel to KC to play on Sunday against KC. The winner will earn a trip to MLS Cup and a birth in next year's CONCACAF Champion's League. KC and Houston met 3 times in all competitions this year, KC won the first meeting in a US Open Cup qualifier, 1-0 with an extra time goal by CJ Sapong in College Station. In the league meeting in Houston, the two teams tied 1-1 on a late goal by Aurelien Collin. In the home meeting KC took care of business winning 3-0 thanks to a brace by Teal Bunbury and another by Sapong. In the 3 games, Houston picked up 3 red cards in those games. So it's likely to be another physical match up.

The game will kick off on Sunday at 4:30pm since LA defeated New York in their game late last night.

Does Houston's height (8 field players over 6'1" that get time)keep CJ Sapong on the field over Bravo?

I think Bravo is the best left winger on the squad, but it is just a thought mulling around my head.
