Sporting KC left winger Bobby Convey remains sidelined while tending to a sore hamstring that has forced him to miss the past four games.
The Eastern Conference-leading Sporting KC continues to look ahead to the MLS Cup Playoffs, so manager Pete Vermes is willing to remain patient with Convey to make sure he has enough time to rest his hamstring and finish the season strong.
"We're slowly bringing him along," Vermes told MLSsoccer.com after Thursday's training session, in which Convey did some light running but did not take part in any scrimmages. "He has a good day, then he has a bad day. So we're just trying to manage things and get through to where he can have a week of good and then get through it."
Sporting KC returns to MLS action on September 14th when they host the Houston Dynamo.
