Impact expects tough match even without Henry
The Montreal will look to earn its fourth win in a row as it plays its second and final regular season game at Olympic Stadium on Saturday against the New York Red bulls. The Impact is the only team to have three wins so far this season and sits first in MLS with nine points.
New York, on the other hand, is still looking for their first win of the season. On top of that, Forward Thierry Henry will miss the game with a leg injury, while midfielders Tim Cahill and defender Roy Miller will miss the match up after being called for international duty .
But Impact defender Jeb Brovsky, says their approach stays the same regardless of injury or standing.
“It doesn’t change very much for us. We know they’re very dangerous without those guys. If you look at their record without those big guns, you know that all those guys are ready to play. We’ve got to be ready, we’ve got to be mentally prepared for anything, and our game plan doesn’t change whether they’re playing or they’re not.”
Midfielder Patrice Bernier says the absence of Henry just means someone else will be twice as hungry to prove himself.
“I see it as another guy who’s going to want to fill in the gap and show the coach that he deserves to have more minutes to play. It’s never a winning situation when a player doesn’t show up because another player wants to prove he’s suited for that position.”
