Portland Timbers 2 will face Real Monarchs SLC for the third time tonight. And this should be the last match that Will Johnson sees with T2 before he sees himself returned to the first team.
Also don't forget that we have a brand new matchday twitter feed for the Timbers 2. Follow @SFTimbers2 tonight for the twitter game day updates from this match.
Match Preview: "What comes next is hopefully a win for T2. But at least they should be going into the match with the confidence that they have the ability to perform against this team. One person they will have but haven't had in the previous two matches is Will Johnson. He is still with T2 getting game minutes and was slated to play in Colorado but missed out due to the weather. Will Johnson himself went on Twitter and said this will be his final tune up match before returning to first team action. Now what first team match he will make his debut in remains to be seen, but this does open up the possibility of everything coming full circle should he be in the Starting XI vs Toronto at BMO Field next Saturday."
Excited to be coming back to my old stomping grounds for my final tune up match. Hope to see some familiar faces at the Riot! @RealSaltLake— Will Johnson (@WillJohnson04) May 15, 2015
