Minnesota United FC will face L.A. Galaxy with two starters on bench

April 22, 2019 05:05 PM

Minnesota United FC lost 4-3 to Toronto FC on Friday night and lost two players in the process. Jan Gregus and Francisco Calvo both received red cards and won't be eligible to play when the team hosts the L.A. Galaxy on Wednesday night.

"It's always a challenge when changing the team. I still think Jan's (Gregus) was a little bit harsh, but Calvo's was silly to give the referee no alternative really with emotions going on at the game. It just highlighted it even more," said MNUFC coach Adrian Heath.

The defense has been a point of contention lately for the Loons. After making repeated mistakes that resulted in two late goals against  Toronto, the team lost out on valuable points in the standings.

"I think the end of the game when we gave up the two goals we need to be more disciplined. We make individual errors and guys will be held accountable, but we have to be more disciplined, keep our shape, and do the right things and try to get results that way. I think that's the biggest take away," said Brent Kallman, MNUFC defender.

After Wednesday night's game, Minnesota United FC will host DC United on Sunday afternoon at Allianz Field in St. Paul.
