Wrapping up preparations before Sunday's derby against the Seattle Sounders, the Portland Timbers trained at their Beaverton training complex. As usual, it was a closed session. The last practice before the match, it was a short session, only about an hour long.
In his post-training comments Coach John Spencer said Mwanga would be a possible starter tomorrow. He also suggested that the team had been expecting the league's decision to suspend Hanyer Mosquera -- Futty will almost certainly start in his place.
