Colin Miller's Keys to the Match

Tune in on matchdays for a one hour pre-match show and one hour post-match show as Colin Miller and Corey Basso call the action live on AM730.

Saturday’s pre-match show kicks off at 3 p.m. PT at whitecapsfc.com/am730.

Here are Colin’s keys for the first ever home match against Austin FC.

Reaction to lads leaving on international duty

The 'Caps will be without a few key players on Saturday.

Maxime Crepeau is away with Canada, as is Lucas Cavallini who had been out with an injury. Javain Brown also earned a well deserved call-up to Jamaica.

Can the rest of the team step up in their absence?

Press Austin high

Austin want to play total football, but they end up giving the ball away.

The press for the 'Caps has to be aggressive when it's on.

Get the ball to Gauld

It's impossible to ignore the impact that Ryan Gauld has had.

The 'Caps need to get him the ball and he will create scoring opportunities.

The deep runs into the box have also been lethal.
