Cavalry v Impact Team News

Wheeldon goes 4-5-1, Garde 4-4-2

A rare start in goal this evening for Clement Diop.

Cavalry coach Tommy Wheeldon Jnr won’t be throwing caution to the wind in an attempt to overturn the tie. He begins with a five-man midfield anchored by Mauro Eustaquio that suggests patience and caution as the key to his strategy.

He’s also sprung somewhat of a surprise by including Dominique Malonga from the start. Malonga will lead the attack as the lone man up front, instead of the expected, Brown.

Remi Garde has gone for Frenchman Clement Diop in goal over James Pantemis. There’s no Piatti of course, and recent signings Bojan and Tabla start this one on the bench. Samuel Piette is not listed in the 18.

Lovitz is again left out, with Corrales preferred, and Jackson-Hamel partners Urruti up front in a conventional 4-4-2 formation.
