Here are Colin’s keys for Sunday's clash with San Jose Earthquakes.

Keep Gauld involved

Ryan Gauld has made a real impact since joining the ‘Caps.

He had two goals and two assists in his first 209 MLS minutes, but he hasn’t managed to get on the score sheet in his past five appearances.

He has the capability to change a game quickly with his vision and early passes, so the ‘Caps need to keep him involved.

Quick movement

This San Jose team can be exposed.

If the ball is played quickly, spaces can open up.

The ‘Caps need to be aware and watch for opportunities on the counterattack.


The ‘Caps need three points, but that starts with the process.

They need to be disciplined in attack and in their defending.

The win is the end product.
