Now for a bit more on goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth's penalty saves, as he has now blocked two in the past two matches.
"The pressure is all on him, so for me, it’s just to not put any pressure on myself and just make a good decision and be patient," Shuttleworth said. "If I go the right way or make a good choice, then I just make a save.
"I just tried to stay patient, kind of just read his shape," Shuttleworth said of encountering Dallas' Mauro Diaz on Saturday. "I have an idea of where he’s gone in the past. Usually do a bit of research before the game and just kind of get a feel for it. Make my decision, stick with it and just try to make a save."
That wasn't what he did a week ago, though, against Montreal.
"Last week, I didn’t look at anything before the game because we had given away five penalties, and I hadn’t saved any, so I wanted to change it up and do something different," Shuttleworth said. "Last week, I didn’t look at anything, and this week, I went back to see some of what he’s taken before."
Shuttleworth has done all this prematch studying on his own, though, as United goalkeeping coach Marius Rovde has been away from the club for several weeks with "personal issues."
"I've learned a lot from Marius this season. It's been great to work with him," Shuttleworth said. "He's added things and helped me out so much this year. It's something that he has to take care of and then we just have to keep trying to move forward."
