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.

Sunday's pre-match show kicks off at 6 p.m. PT at whitecapsfc.com/am730.

Here are Colin’s keys for a huge home match against Sporting Kansas City.

Battle of the Scots

This is going to be an exciting one to watch.

Ryan Gauld and Johnny Russell, both of whom played at Dundee United, are two of the most dynamic attacking players in MLS.

We know what Gauld has done in Vancouver. For SKC, Russell has 10 goals and 7 assists, among the highest goal contributions in the league.

They are both huge influencers for their team.

Stay with runners

Sporting Kansas City has scored 51 goals, best in the Western Conference and second only to New England Revolution in MLS.

They have terrific movement, as we saw the first time these teams met.

The 'Caps must stay compact and disciplined defensively.

Counter quickly

SKC commit players forward.

The 'Caps have shown that they can be a real threat on the counter.

If they break quickly with quality, they can have success.
