Colin's Keys to conquer the Quakes

Colin's Keys 2023 CKNW

Tune in on matchdays for a pre-match show and post-match show. Sunday's match will be live on 980 CKNW, with the pre-match show kicking off at 6:30 p.m. PT.

Here are Colin's keys to conquer San Jose Earthquakes.

Positive movement

The San Jose back four can be very static.

We need positive movement from side to side, and we need players looking for the ball in-between lines.

If we do that, then we can hurt them.

The break

The ‘Caps haven’t played a match since August 4, and haven’t played a league match since July 15.

The team was in good form in MLS before the break, and that carried into the Leagues Cup.

Now, how quickly can we get back up to speed.

Connections new and old

It was a great end to the transfer window with the additions of Sam Adekugbe and Richie Laryea.

This will be the first game since they’ve arrived. How quickly can they settle in?

At the other end of the pitch, can Ryan Gauld and Brian White continue their strong partnership?
