Sounders Insider

Sounders not surprised by Marshall suspension; Scott likely to fill in vs. Timbers

SCHMIDOn the suspension itself: We knew it was going to get looked at. They usually let you know when they’re going to look at those kinds of things. We felt that it might be a possibility. I looked at it again. For sure he was a little high, but if you look at it the ball sort of jumped up there too – his foot wasn’t really far off the ball. … It wasn’t a surprise once we heard they were going to look into it.

On the lineup implications Sunday: Obviously Zach Scott has been our third center back, so it’s a pretty easy assumption that he’s the guy that will step into the lineup.
