Looks like both teams will be missing a key player.

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said Obafemi Martins likely won’t be available unless he wakes up Wednesday morning feeling a lot better than he did Tuesday. The forward has missed four of the last five games.

“If we had to decide today, he wouldn’t be playing,” Schmid said after practice, “but we’ll have to see how he feels tomorrow.”

Regarding Colorado, reports are that Dillon Powers has been ruled out. The talented midfielder is perhaps the leading candidate for MLS Rookie of the Year this season and had a influential performance in the 5-1 win over Seattle earlier this month.

Lastly, Shalrie Joseph has returned to Sounders training, so that’s a good sign in his recovery.
