SKC manager Peter Vermes has suggested that they only have 16 fit players available and that includes two goalkeepers.
“We need some bodies,” Vermes is quoted as saying by MLSsoccer.com.
Vermes has been said to be considering his options, and recalling Saad Abdul-Salaam from his loan spell with NASL side San Antonio Scorpions.

The current injury list includes the likes of Graham Zusi (head), Ike Opara (achilles) and Roger Espinoza (groin), who all are starters in the current squad.
Seth Sinovic (illness), Eric Palmer-Brown (international duty), Marcel de Jong (groin), Bernardo Anor (hamstring), Chance Myers (achilles) and Paulo Nagamura (back) are all expected to miss the tie too.
With an inconsistent start to the season already behind them, Sporting Kansas City will need to remain competitive during this period, and the double gameweek comes at possibly the worst time for Peter Vermes’ men.
They travel to Seattle Sounders on Saturday night after their home game with the Revs on Wednesday night.
