Here are Colin’s keys as the 'Caps play another massive match for playoff positioning in a first ever visit from Nashville SC.

Don’t overplay

Nashville were on a six-match winless streak, but they broke that with a convincing 4-0 home win over FC Dallas this past weekend.

They pressed Dallas high and aggressively.

The ‘Caps can’t afford to overplay at the back.

Big players in good form

This is a huge match where we can pass Nashville to get back over the playoff line with only six games remaining.

We could potentially see our strongest lineup. Many of our best players have been playing well, led by Ryan Gauld with four goals and six assists in his last 10 matches.

The big boys need to continue their good form.

BC Place!

It’s been a strong last two years at BC Place, with a 7W-3L-3D record at home this year.

We need to keep making it a difficult place for opposition and a happy home for us.

The fans have a major role to play.
