The New York Red Bulls and Sporting Kansas City will limp into Red Bull Arena to face off on April 9.

For the Red Bulls, the injury bug has been limited to the back line, with the exception of forward Gonzalo Veron. Defenders Gideon Baah, Kemar Lawrence and Ronald Zubar are all out injured for the contest against SKC forcing the team to test the limits of their defensive depth. Midfielder Felipe will not feature in the match after being suspended for picking up a red card last week in New England. Second year midfielder Sean Davis is expected to take Felipe's place in the starting lineup.

Jesse Marsch has confirmed he will run a backline of Connor Lade-Karl Ouimette-Chris Duvall-Sal Zizzo for the match. Only one of those four started opening day, and Marsch is playing Duvall, a right back, out of position instead of trusting second round draft pick Zach Carroll with the start. Duvall will be making his first appearance, in any capacity, at center back. For the Red Bulls to succeed, the stabilizing factor of Karl Ouimette and the defensive play of Dax McCarty will be imperative.
