Buzz’s FCD Lineup Predction
I think in the mind of the coaching staff they will look at the game in Portland and think they had some things to work with. That means there won’t be a whole lot of changes. That includes the Frano Jara at 9 playing hold-up style.
Unfortunately, I don’t believe – but hope I am wrong – that Paxton Pomykal can start again this quickly. And since no other wings have really blown us away, I’ll shift Ryan Hollingshead back to left wing and put Johnny Nelson at left back. Outside chance Jader Obrian just replaces Pomykal.
The wild card? How about a first start for Szabolcs Schön? Could that come on the road?
