Newly acquired Chivas USA player Sal Zizzo is not on tomorrow’s roster, but he may be game ready soon. Earlier today Zizzo worked on ball handling with rehabbing Jonathan Bornstein as the young midfielder regains his fitness.

“The way he is progressing we are hopeful that he can play soon,” said Vasquez. “We’re going to schedule some games so we can watch him in an 11 on 11 game situation and if he continues to make progress, I think he’s going to play a few minutes pretty soon.”

In addition to Zizzo, players not expected to play in tomorrow's match against Columbus are Zach Thornton (ankle), Jonathan Bornstein (knee) and Mariano Trujillo (yellow card accumulation).
