It's game day once again. This afternoon, Jay Heaps' men will travel to Tuscon, Az. for a midweek scrimmage against the San Jose Earthquakes. The Revolution have spent the past eight days training in Casa Grande, Az., for the beginning of a one-month preseason stint on the west coast.
In a pregame interview with revolutionsoccer.net, Jay Heaps commented on the importance of a balanced workload:
"It’s all light loads. I don’t think we’re worried about anyone going 90 minutes," Heaps said. "We’re going to balance the lineup and really the idea is to make game scenarios minutes-wise equal to the load of a training session. So it’s really just like having three training sessions in four days."
Over the next four days, the Revolution will also take on FC Dallas (Thursday, 12 PM ET) and the Vancouver Whitecaps (Saturday, 6:30 PM ET).
Location: Kino Sports Complex, Tucson, Az.
Kick-Off Time: 1:30 PM ET
