Here are Colin’s keys to another big home match against FC Dallas. 

Build on attacking play

Our attacking play was terrific on Wednesday.

The 5-0 win included the first goals of the season for Tristan Blackmon, Ryan Raposo, Pedro Vite, and Brian White. Ryan Gauld had two assists, and Julian Gressel has now had an assist in all three games to start the year. 

We need to build on that performance against Dallas.

Competition for places

Having players compete for their place on the pitch makes the whole team stronger.

Raposo was very good in his first start at left back on Wednesday, and he scored a good goal as well.

That is just a sample of the competition within the club now. 

Dallas' front three

We will need to watch the front three of Paul Arriola, Jesús Ferreira, and Alan Velasco.

Their movement is very dangerous.

We must match their runs and be aware of them getting in behind us.
