Andy O’Brien is closing in on a return to action with Vancouver Whitecaps following a hamstring injury.
“In terms of being available for that game, it might be a little bit soon – certainly to start,” O’Brien told MLSsoccer.com ahead of the weekend’s clash with LA Galaxy.
“Hopefully Thursday there could be an opportunity that I could train, and then depending on how well that goes, it’s the manager’s decision.
“It’s the best it’s been. I think it’s just been a bit frustrating, because I was running five days after I’d done the injury and I seem to have been running for a long time now.”
