Rapids an intriguing foe for Schellas Hyndman, FCD
Here’s Schellas Hyndman on several Colorado-related subjects after a short recovery session on Monday morning.
On facing Oscar Pareja for the first time
Hyndman: It’ll be good. I know it’ll be a real emotional game for him and I know his players will play their hearts out for him. I think we’re steadily improving. It helps getting people healthy. It helps getting Jackson there. So I think we’re going to continue to find ways of getting those three points.
On how the Rapids already have three clean sheets this season
Hyndman: I think they’ve got a solid defense. I think their back four is good. I think they’re playing with two holding midfielders now. I think they’ve got a real good defensive structure, good goalkeeping and Omar [Cummings] has been very effective up front, so I think it’s just going to take a little time to all get on the same page with what Oscar [Pareja] wants.
On what Kamani Hill has meant to them so far
Hyndman: A good player, I think he’s a player that kind of fits into what Oscar’s looking for-a technical player. He scored this weekend. The ball kind of popped up for him but he did put it away.
