Columbus Crew coach Sigi Schmid is looking forward to the second leg of their game against the Kansas City Wizards.

The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw and the Crew now have the chance to decide the match in front of its fans at the Crew stadium on Saturday.

“I’ve been a believer you always want to play the second game at home,” Schmid said.

“It changes (Kansas City’s) approach probably, more than anything. If they had the lead they could come like ‘Let’s really sit in. Let’s look to counter.’ Now they have to play.”

Schmid continued: “We created more chances but we couldn’t buy a goal. They scored a great goal on a counter. We were getting close. We’ve got to get better flank play. I don’t think Robbie Rogers had his best game. Eddie Gaven didn’t necessarily have his best game, either.

“With a little more space that will help us on the flanks. We still need to get Guillermo (Barros Schelotto) a little closer to Alejandro at times to help create more problems that way. On a bigger field we’ll move the ball better. We just have to move it quicker.”
