Rose eager to feed Seattle Sounders stars Martins, Dempsey

Andy Rose is hoping he gets the chance to supply two of his star Seattle Sounders teammates on Wednesday night.

The Australian-born midfielder could be selected to replace the injured Gonzalo Pineda against the Colorado Rapids and if he gets the nod, will be eager to provide Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey with plenty of opportunities.

Rose produced the assist for Martins' stunning goal in the 3-1 win at Colorado on April 18 and is keen to be involved again after last starting against New York City FC at the beginning of the month.

"That (Martins) goal was one of the best I've ever seen live for sure," Rose said.

"That's what a player like that is capable of. Getting him and Clint the ball is obviously vital as frequently as possible and as high on the pitch as possible. So that's what the rest of us will be aiming to do."

The Sounders go into the home fixture with the Rapids sitting second on the Western Conference table.
