Seattle Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said the comeback of the reserve league would be good at this stage of the season.

The Sounders will have a full squad to choose from this week and Schmid said that the reserve league would be a handy proposition about now.

"We were looking for a window where we actually had a full week and we weren't coming off a midweek game...I know there's a little push within the league to maybe bring the reserve league back next year, so we'll see what happens,” Schmid said.

Seattle take on Toronto FC at Qwest Field on Saturday and Schmid was trying to get some game time into the reserves players this week at training.

“We wanted to get the reserve guys who have not been playing in a lot of games at least 45 minutes of something that seemed a lot more game-like than they have faced and play somebody different,” he added.
