Ramiro Corrales Out With Hamstring Injury

According to the San Jose Mercury News San Jose left back Ramiro Corrales will not be able to play this Saturday in the Eastern Conference Finals:

San Jose might be at a disadvantage because left fullback Ramiro Corrales can’t play after suffering a hamstring muscle strain at the end of the first half at New York. Convey moved to left back but prefers to operate in the midfield where he directs the offense.

Corrales, a team captain, worked hard to return to the lineup in time for the playoffs after suffering a strained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. While out Bobby Convey played admirably in defense but his value as an attacking midfielder is tough to give up, as witnessed in his man-of-the-match performance in San Jose’s 3-1 win over New York.

Frank Yallop is leaning towards starting Chris Leitch at left back to keep Convey in the midfield. If that is the case Leitch will have the unenviable task of dealing with Connor Casey and Omar Cummings, Colorado’s dynamic offensive duo.
