SCOTT PETERSON - Saturday, October 29, 2011
Michael Bradley will assume his regular defensive midfield position in Domenico di Carlo's starting eleven as Chievo looks to get back to winning ways as they travel to Tuscany to take on AC Siena.
After getting off to a torrid start to the new campaign, the Flying Donkeys of Chievo have been grounded of late, losing their past two matches and failing to produce any goals in their past three.
That string of matches did include tough tests against Juventus and Inter, the former ending in a scoreless draw and the latter in a narrow 1-0 defeat, but also a disappointing one-goal loss to fellow pre-season relegation candidates Bologna.
Newly promoted Siena, on the other hand, is enjoying its best run of play on young season and is unbeaten in its last three outings with a 2-0 victory against Cesena sandwiched by two ties against Cagliari and Novara respectively.
Neither side is reporting injuries for what can only be described as a must-win match for both teams, which are currently are neighbors in the standings with Siena in seventh and Chievo in a four-way tie for eighth.
