Looking for Left Backs

Corey Ashe was given a yellow card in the Houston Dynamo's extra time win over the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night. With his yellow in the Montreal match, this means he'll miss the first leg against Sporting Kansas City. Who should the Dynamo replace him with?

Early in extra time last night, Houston Dynamo left back Corey Ashe saw yellow for a foul on New York's Ibrahim Sekagya. While a single yellow is generally not a cause for concern, Ashe had also seen yellow during the mêlée at the end of the Montreal match. For those who don't remember, during the playoffs, you only need to accumulate two yellows to earn a suspension, which is exactly what happened to Corey Ashe - he'll miss the first leg of the Eastern Conference final against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday.

With centerback Jermaine Taylor already out for the season with a left foot fracture, the Dynamo are already low on replacements for the back line. So, who will they put in there to go against Kansas City playmaker Graham Zusi? Will it be Mike Chabala, who the Dynamo brought back this season - even though he hasn't seen much time this year? Will it be Warren Creavalle, who has been shifted around a lot during his career? Could we even, as Dynamometer suggested, play Andrew Driver there?

The choice, of course, is up to Dominic Kinnear, but I'll also put it up to you, Dynamo Theory readers. Who would you like to see at left back come Saturday afternoon?
