|Juan Manuel Martínez||Doubtful||7.08|
- Manager Jeff Cassar is without a host of players for the reception of the Houston Dynamos. Juan Manuel Martinez was forced off midway through the first half in the 5-2 defeat to LA Galaxy last time out and could well join some of his teammates in the stands this weekend. Demar Phillips could continue on the right flank in his place.
- Sunny was an unused substitute in the loss against the Galaxy after missing the match altogether against the Vancouver Whitecaps a week before. He started the season well and could be promoted back into the starting XI if Cassar looks to tinker in midfield.
- Real Salt Lake have switched between a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 formation throughout the season, so it remains to be seen how they will line up here.
- Tyler Deric's first start of the season ended in him being sent off after 18 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Columbus Crew last time out. Joe Willis will return between the sticks for this one.
- Collen Warner made his first appearance of the season in that defeat, but his afternoon lasted just 20 minutes after he was sacrificed following the red card to their goalkeeper.
- Abdoulie Mansally was also given his first 30 minutes in nearly a month late on into that fixture, meaning Owen Coyle now has a squad free from injuries.
- Coyle's experiment with a new 4-1-4-1 formation lasted just less than 20 minutes when they were made to play over an hour with 10-men. He could be tempted to stick with it for another week after managing to keep the the Crew to scoring just one goal.
- Agus was solid in his first appearance of the season at the heart of their defence and he could retain his spot ahead of David Horst.
