Toronto FC faces another tough road game

--

After a disappointing loss in Dallas, Toronto FC finds itself back in hot, hostile surroundings in Orlando on Wednesday.

Saturday's 3-1 defeat in Texas, combined with Chicago's 4-0 win over visiting Vancouver, dropped Toronto (10-3-5) into second spot in the Eastern Conference behind the Fire (11-3-4).

Orlando (8-6-5) could be another tough out. Enjoying life at Orlando City Stadium, the Lions are 6-1-3 in their new digs this season. And Canadian striker Cyle Larin is back in the fold after a three-game absence following his drunk-driving arrest.

We try to force things up the middle and then we get separated from front to back and we end up in an open game where we don't necessarily give away a ton of chances but we give away these opportunities for the opposition to really counter-attack us.

"What chances they (Dallas) had were all really off of transitions, off of counter-attacks, off of what I thought were turnovers in areas that we shouldn't lose the ball."

For Vanney, it's "a little bit of us undoing ourself."

Toronto plays an aggressive 3-5-2 formation with the two wingbacks positioned high on the flanks and playmaker Victor Vazquez largely focused on attack

While captain Michael Bradley is a very effective shield in front of the back three, Toronto can be overrun after turnovers, given most of the team is going one way and the ball is going the other. …
