There’s been a lot of talk lately about Chris Wingert’s seemingly falling stock with him only starting one of the past three matches. Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis was asked point blank Friday if the defender is in his doghouse for some reason.
“No chance. I think it’s a combination of a little bit extra fatigue with Chris because he’s been going for a long time, and just a little bit he’s not in his best shape right now. But I also believe it can happen at any minute, I think the switch is going to go off in his head and hopefully that’s this weekend,” said Kreis.
With Robbie Russell suspended for this Saturday’s match because of a red card, Wingert figures to get starting nod against the Galaxy.
One player who definitely won’t be playing is Robbie Findley. RSL’s leading scorer won’t be traveling with the team to California today as he’s still nursing an ankle injury he picked up in the second half against Colorado last Saturday.
