D.C. United Vs. Colorado Rapids: Wolff and Simms Back In D.C. Lineup

D.C. United head coach Ben Olsen has made two changes to the line-up that started last Saturday's 0-0 draw against FC Dallas. As expected, Josh Wolff is back at the forward position alongside Charlie Davies, while Clyde Simms returns to the central midfield role and will play alongside Dax McCarty. Correspondingly, Joseph Ngwenya  (who started and played 54 minutes against Dallas) drops to the bench. Stephen King, who played the full 90 against Dallas, is not a part of the eligible 18. 

For Colorado, Conor Casey starts on the bench, meaning Andre Akpan and Quincy Amarikwa start up front for Gary Smith. Jamie Smith starts in midfield for Colorado and Kosuke Kimura shifts into defense as Scott Palguta is dropped to the bench.

The full line-ups for both teams are below. Members of the U.S. National Team's player pool are in italics.

Full D.C. United Starting Line-up: Bill Hamid (GK), Perry Kitchen, Ethan White, Dejan Jakovic, Daniel Woolard, Andy Najar, Clyde Simms, Dax McCarty (Captain), Chris Pontius, Josh Wolff, Charlie Davies.
