With another match in less than three whole days and facing a relatively weak opponent, D.C. United manager Ben Olsen has done the lineup shuffle ahead of tonight's match against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Charlie Davies, Clyde Simms, and Ethan White will start tonight on the substitutes' bench, while Blake Brettschneider, Chris Korb, and Marc Burch come into the starting lineup. Korb and Burch will be the two full-backs, while Brandon McDonald and Daniel Woolard will form the center-back partnership. With no place for him in the back four, Perry Kitchen will move into central midfield alongside Stephen King, while Austin da Luz will start ahead of Santino Quaranta on the left wing and Josh Wolff will partner Brettschneider up top.
For Vancouver, Tom Soehn makes no changes from the side that defeated Real Salt Lake 3-0 on Thursday.
