Colin Miller's Keys to the Match 2022

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.

Saturday’s pre-match show kicks off at 2:30 p.m. PT at whitecapsfc.com/am730. Here are Colin’s keys for the 'Caps road match at Houston Dynamo FC.

White or Cavallini

Whoever starts at striker for the ‘Caps will be key to getting the attack going.

After a positive overall performance from Cavallini, this match could be the catalyst for him to kickstart his season, but he must keep his discipline.

And having Brian White back would be a big boost for this team. He has proven that he’s a genuine scoring threat for the Whitecaps.

Going to Gauld

The ‘Caps will be wanting to break forward quicker.

Ryan Gauld needs to be the focal point for balls playing out the back.

He will be key to breaking through Houston’s back four, who have only conceded one goal so far.

Defensively sound

Last Saturday’s clean sheet was a better response from the ‘Caps after their opening match.

They will need to be defensively as good as they were in the second half against NYCFC.

This was a key component of the turnaround last year.
