Coming off the All-Star break, Atlanta faces one of its toughest road tests of the season, traveling to Kansas City. The stadium itself provides a blanketing atmosphere, but SKC has posted an unbeaten home record all season. AUFC will face a difficult test to take any points from this fixture and need to try to take points from any match in August, with only three matches this month. The Wizards are in first place in a weaker Western Conference, as their 36 points would land them in fourth in the East. As mentioned, their 7-0-4 home record is due in large part to stingiest defense in all of MLS. They have conceded only 17 goals in 22 matches. The Five Stripes will be without two key players: Josef Martinez and Greg Garza. The latter may be the more difficult replacement, as Mark Bloom is also out. Will Tata start Anton Walkes on the left? Mikey Ambrose? We shall see. Despite a rough time in May and June on the road, Atlanta has taken four points in their last two road matches. Any points would be a huge success for Atlanta this Sunday. Sporting Kansas City: Suspended: None Int'l duty: None Injuries: OUT: F - Cameron Porter (broken fibula and ligament damage in right ankle 8/2, out for season) Atlanta United Suspended: None Int'l duty: None Injuries: OUT: F - Kenwyne Jones (knee inflammation), GK - Alec Kann (left quad injury 7/1, out 6-8 weeks), D - Mark Bloom (lower back injury) F - Josef Martinez (foot injury); DOUBTFUL: D Greg Garza (separated right shoulder) How does Tata replace Garza? Do we see Gressel or Vasquez start? Why is Graham Zusi still playing soccer?
