Chivas USA will be missing captain Jesse Marsch (through suspension) along with Sasha Kljestan and Johnathan Bornstein (international duty) this weekend when the red and white face Seattle Sounders in Los Angeles.
However, head coach Preki feels his squad has built up a strong commitment to deal with such situations.
Speaking at training this week Preki said: "We have a group of players that works for each other every day. It doesn't matter who is on the field; we're going to play the same way and the team's commitment is going to be the same. That's been the case all season and hopefully it continues."
