SKC Lineup

Breaking Down the XI | One Change vs. SKC

Orlando City is set to host Sporting Kansas City at Exploria Stadium tonight in a crucial inter-conference matchup.

After a strong performance in Toronto, James O’Connor has deployed the same XI with just one alteration. 

In goal Brian Rowe makes his 24th start of the season.

Ahead of him, Kamal Miller, Robin Jansson, Lamine Sané and Kyle Smith will team up for the second consecutive week. Rookie Kamal Miller’s performance on the weekend caught many eyes around the league and he’ll look to build off that tonight.

In the defensive midfield, Carlos Ascues, who was named to the MLS Team of the Week bench, and Uri Rosell will pair up again. 

In front of them, Tesho Akindele, the loan change tonight, will link up with Chris Mueller and Nani. 

Up top, Dom Dwyer will play against his former team as the solo striker.
