For visiting TFC, Jozy Altidore remains out altogether, as he's not in the 18 for the match. The forward had been thought possible for this game after missing the playoffs so far, but nothing doing on the night. TFC's other notable absence, defender Omar Gonzalez, is once again on the bench as he's also recovering from an injury.
Atlanta's XI has a notable name back in the fold, as defender Michael Parkhurst returns after missing the Eastern Conference Semifinal round with a shoulder injury suffered in Round One. Parkhurst will also serve as captain for the match. Fellow defender Miles Robinson remains out of the 18 as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
