Back line shuffle in the offing

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

When the Fire visits Seattle on Saturday night there'll be some major changes in the defensive end. Right back Dasan Robinson isn't likely to play due to a hamstring injury and Wilman Conde, the All-Star central defender, will serve a yellow card suspension.
Robinson will be replaced by up-and-coming rookie Steven Kinney, but coach Carlos de los Cobos isn't sure how he'll cover for Conde. One option would be to move left back Gonzalo Segares to the middle and return Krzysztof Krol to the lineup on the left side. Segares has played in the middle before -- prior to his five-month stint playing in Cyprus.
Then too, de los Cobos could opt to keep Segares on the left and bring in rookie Kwame Watson-Siriboe to play opposite veteran C.J. Brown in the middle. Still another option would be to play Krol and Segares at the same time, with Krol playing as the central defender.
