7 p.m. at San Jose • FSN Plus, 1500-AM
Preview: The Loons have already matched last season’s road victory total — one — with a 3-2 victory at Vancouver, but you can bet they have worked on defending set pieces since last Saturday. “We obviously have to do better than we did,” coach Adrian Heath said. … United is 0-4 against San Jose in its first two seasons in the league. … The Earthquakes lost their opener 2-1 to Montreal at home. … San Jose forward Chris Wondolowski is two goals from breaking Landon Donovan’s MLS goal-scoring record of 145. … United midfielder Romario Ibarra started up front against Vancouver while designated player Angelo Rodriguez entered in the 84th minute. Heath called Rodriguez more fit this week but wouldn’t say whether he’ll move into a starting role. … Heath deemed 2017 No. 1 overall draft pick Abu Danladi available and “100 percent” recovered from an ankle injury that has sidelined him since January. … Earthquakes midfielder Jackson Yueill, from Bloomington, and Danladi were teammates for two seasons at UCLA.
Did you know? The next United goal will be its 100th in MLS play.
Injuries: United MF Kevin Molino (knee) is out as is San Jose defender Kevin Partida (torn ACL).
