Last night was a night to forget for Sporting KC with the final result being a 2-1 loss to Houston. Here's a breakdown of SKC player ratings from the game:
Came up big on a deflection, and can't really be blamed for either goal. Jimmy is never going to be the fastest of goalies, but his instincts are spot on.
Sporting KC was abused outside on the left as well as the right. In Sinovic's case, they played more inside of him, but he didn't play a part when they drifted inside pulling the center backs away from their mark towards Will Bruin's diagonal runs.
He was on the field. Had a clever flick on in the waning moments of the match, but neither hurt or helped his cause. The rift that may exist between Vermes and Julio Cesar did more to help his stock than this performance.
He sure is fast. There were ample opportunities for that speed to pay dividends in the first half, but each time Bunbury was foiled by either impatience or poor touch. Obviously, the PK argument with Kamara was odd, but chalk that up to Bunbury just wanting to be involved and score as opposed to the weirdly petulant display by both players.
