Chris Seitz will make a third straight start between the posts for FC Dallas on Saturday night at the Home Depot Center against the Los Angeles Galaxy. The recovery of No. 1 goalkeeper Kevin Hartman, who has missed two straight games with back spasms, is progressing nicely, but FCD head coach Schellas Hyndman decided to leave him back in Frisco this weekend so he can get some additional rest.

“I think he’s probably about 80, 85 percent right now. I think he’ll probably be ready to go against Colorado,” Hyndman said of Hartman. “That will give him a little bit more rest time. He wasn’t able to open it up completely yesterday [Wednesday] in training, so because of that we’ll keep him out of this game.”

However, the outlook isn’t quite as certain with midfielder Ricardo Villar, who continues to be sidelined with a big toe issue. “Don’t know, I think the ideal situation would be Colorado but I don’t know,” said a perplexed Hyndman.

But fellow midfielder Andrew Jacobson could return to action this weekend after missing the last few games with a hamstring issue. “AJ will be making this trip and hopefully we’ll be able to get him on the field,” Hyndman said.
