Moreno Sits Out Match vs Chivas

Alejandro Moreno missed his first match of the season Saturday with a right knee contusion after being listed as questionable going into the contest.

"We don’t want to risk anything tonight to make sure that we’re going to be ready for this home stretch," said manager Peter Nowak. "We play San Jose, then Celtic, then Toronto, then we play Manchester United, and then the New England Revolution. So it’s a pretty good stretch for us going forward and we don’t want to risk anything. (We wanted to) prevent anything from happening to make sure he's going to be ready for next week.”

The Union face the San Jose Earthquakes next Saturday at PPL Park, the first of four straight matches in the club's new home.
