Hello on a beautiful night from Toyota Park. We are set to see our Chicago Fire (4-3-3 15 pts) take on the visiting FC Dallas (3-6-4 13 pts) in the only Brimstone Cup matchup this season.
Dallas: Hartman, Loyd, John, Hedges, Benitez, Jackson, Marcelin, Jacobson, Hernandez (C), Leyva, Perez.
Chicago: Johnson, Gargan, Anibaba, Berry, Segares, Nyarko, Robayo, Grazzini, Pause (C), Pappa, Oduro.
Dallas: Seitz, Guarda, Hernandez, Rodriguez, Sealy, Top, Ulloa
Chicago: Tornaghi, Jumper, Bone, Paladini, Pardo, Barouch, Puppo
Referee: Hilario Grajeda
Assistants: Peter Balciunas, Kevin Klinger
4th Official: Abiodun Okulaja
The first thing that jumps out right away is Robayo starting in place of Pardo.
It'll be interesting to see how Robayo handles himself with the only now opportunity to start and get some solid minutes.
Coming off the loss in Portland, the Fire need to get out to an early lead and build on it - no giving up the first goal, and no sitting back if they go ahead early.
The lineup has Patrick Nyarko listed in the midfield with a 4-5-1 lineup - no big surprise there.
It's time for the pregame pagentry, I'll check back in with you guys at halftime - make sure to follow along on Twitter if you're not at the park tonight.
