SET PIECE CAUTION
Ahead of Sunday's match against the Portland Timbers (5:00 p.m. ET/Comcast SportsNet), Thursday's D.C. United training session included a large portion of time devoted to set pieces. The team worked on both defending and scoring from dead-ball plays.
"[Portland] is very good on set pieces," Assitant Coach Chad Ashton said following training. "It's no secret that [set pieces] have been one of our weaknesses, so we're going to have to do a good job and hopefully do a better job on the offensive side of [set plays] as well."
