Colin's Keys CKNW

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. This weekend's match will be broadcast live on CKNW 980.

Saturday's pre-match show kicks off at 6 p.m. PT at globalnews.ca/radio/cknw/player.

Here are Colin’s keys for another big match in San Jose.

Get the ball in the box for Brian White

Brian White has now scored or assisted on nine of the 'Caps last 11 goals.

His headers have been fabulous.

Four of his last six goals, and one of his assists, have been with his head.

Match San Jose's work ethic

San Jose are a wounded animal.

But they are coming off of a strong 4-0 home victory over Austin FC on Wednesday.

They only have one home game left after this one, so they will come out strong and the 'Caps need to match them.

Competition for places

With three games in a week, there was some much needed rotation to start Wednesday's match in Portland.

However the first half wasn't at the level. The second half was much better.

The competition for places will need a better return on gameday down the stretch.
