AGAINST SCHALKE, EXPECT NOWAK TO ROLL OUT NEW-LOOK LINEUP
Nowak said Tuesday that he'll more than likely favor giving a few of his reserves opportunities to play against the German Bundesliga side.
“We've never been shy, over these two-and-a-half years, to give (younger players) a chance," Nowak said during a presser at PPL Park. "It's a good chance to gain experience, a good chance to see first-hand what those teams are all about – from Chivas, Celtic, Real Madrid and Schalke."
- In 2010, against Celtic FC, Nowak had reserve goalkeepers Brad Knighton and Brian Perk split time between the posts. He gave Knighton minutes against Manchester United, as well.
- In 2011, eventual Homegrown Player Cristhian Hernandez scored the game-winning goal against Everton, during which teenagers Zach Pfeffer and Jimmy McLaughlin also appeared.
Nowak confirmed that reserve goalkeeper Chase Harrison will start between the posts.
