Rapids Podcast: O'Neill and Klute return to where their careers took off

Young defenders got their break early in the season in LA, on return they've not left the pitch

The Colorado Rapids return to California this weekend to face the LA Galaxy, eager to get their playoff push back on track after last weekend's loss at Sporting Kansas City.

In this week's Rapids Podcast, defenders Shane O'Neill and Chris Klute talk of the importance of the remaining seven regular-season games, all against Western Conference opposition.

The pair also reflect on the previous meeting with the Galaxy in LA, on what many may argue was a pivotal point of the season.

"It was my first significant action in the league, so obviously I was quite nervous," O'Neill said. "But a lot has happened since then, and I'm looking forward to playing back in LA."
