Welcome Rapids Fans:

This evening we play our third match in the space of a week, and I know that the players are determined to build on last Saturday's battling 1-0 home win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

Congratulations to Lucas Pittinari on his first goal in MLS, and to both Luis Solignac and Kevin Doyle on making their MLS debuts.

It has been a busy week of differing emotions for Colorado Rapids. Victory over Vancouver last weekend ended a long run without a home win. Relief was palpable. In midweek, a moment of brilliance saw Seattle squeeze out victory on their tricky turf. Frustration was obvious.

Colorado Rapids Forward, Kevin Doyle (#9)

On his debut start...

It was nice obviously to start but you want to win or draw the game or get something from it and we didn’t so you don’t enjoy it when that's the case.

On the difference playing in Seattle compared to Colorado altitude and then artificial turf:

Colorado Rapids finally lost their unbeaten record on the road when they went down 1-0 at Seattle on Wednesday.

Before kickoff, Pablo Mastroeni’s side were the only MLS side yet to taste defeat away from home, having got at least a point at Philadelphia, Houston, Dallas, New York and LA Galaxy so far this term.

The Irish superstar talked about how pleased he was to find the pitch against the Whitecaps and is adjusting well to the Altitude. Altitude won't be an issue when the team travels to Seattle to take on the Sounders. With the additions of Doyle and Luis Solignac, the Rapids have stated numerous times that they now have all of the pieces to compete with anyone in the league. They will look to prove that in the Emerald City on Wednesday night.

Colorado Rapids secured their first home victory of the season with a 1-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night.
 
Lucas Pittinari’s second-half strike was enough to seal the points for Pablo Mastroeni’s side after play had resumed following a delay due to lightning in the area.
 
Although Vancouver substitute Pedro Morales had a free-kick disallowed late on, debutant Rapids striker Luis Solignac also could have extended their lead.
