Ben Olsen has given his back line a significant rejigger ahead of tonight's match. Ethan White partners Dejan Jakovic at center-back, while Perry Kitchen shifts to right back and Daniel Woolard starts just his second match of the season at left-back as Marc Burch, suffering from a strained hamstring, doesn't even make the bench. Less surprisingly, Andy Najar comes in on the right side of midfield and Charlie Davies and Josh Wolff partner each other up front for the 4th straight match.
