Chad Marshall fails late fitness test.
Chad Marshall failed a late fitness test and has been removed from the starting lineup. Danny O'Rourke has shifted to the back line and Chris Birchall will pair with Milovan Mirosevic in midfield.
O'Rourke will be a capable replacement, but the Crew midfield will miss out on his defense first mentality. Birchall has a tendency to push forward and he and Milo will have to work together to rekindle an understanding quickly of when to push play forward and to sit back.
