The Toronto game will be Atlanta United’s fifth in 15 days. Glass said the lineup for the game will be finalized tomorrow. Having played so many games in so few days, Glass said he will talk to the players about what he will need from them in terms of minutes Sunday. He said he may also use the data compiled by the team’s sports scientists from training sessions and games. That data can indicate which players are more likely to be able to go X-amount of minutes in a game.
Additionally, Glass said that defender/midfielder Brooks Lennon should be available Sunday. Lennon appeared to sustain discomfort in right leg during the Miami game. After mis-hitting a pass across the field and out of bounds, Lennon went to ground and motioned for trainers. Lennon has been the team’s most dependable player, with 17 starts as part of 18 appearances this season. He has two goals and two assists.
