    RSL... we meet again. They won their first match, but are they any good? We wanted to give injury updates, but Peter Vermes gave essentially no updates on his star players being injured. Will Johnny Russell or Alan Pulido get their first starts of the season? Who is more likely to play? Plus, Isimat-Mirin went off injured last game. We don't know if he is match fit or not.
