It should be pointed out that the opposing goal keeper for the match this Saturday will likely be former RSL keeper Chris Seitz. FC Dallas will be missing their regular starter who is with Peru for their WCQ match against Chile.

How many RSL fans remember that Saunders was brought in as a second half sub for an inured Donavan Ricketts in the 2009 MLS Cup final. He was between the posts during the penalty shootout and did quite well for LA.

Josh should prove to be a solid backup and with Rimando likely to miss more games with more upcoming WCQ and Gold Cup matches it is nice to have an experienced veteran to step in and take his place.
