The Portland Thorns have a nice early game this morning against the Chicago Red Stars as the two teams with identical records battle to move up in the standings. The Thorns have struggled to put together a consistent run of form in recent weeks, despite finally nearing full strength. Now, with Tobin Heath finally in Portland, the Thorns will have all of their pieces on hand at last and will be looking to put some points on the board.
Here is all the information that you need for today's match:
This match will likely be wildly unpredictable, since both sides finally find themselves will all their pieces and time to training together, though this advantage goes to the Red Stars as Heath has only been with the Thorns since Tuesday. The Thorns have had more opportunities to see what their mostly-finished product will look like, though to this point it has been less than impressive."
