This week the Caps are back on the road again as they head to the Mile High City to face the Colorado Rapids. The Whitecaps and Rapids are currently tied for 2nd place in the über-competitive MLS Western Conference on 36 points each. The ‘Caps have two games in hand on their opponents and Saturday's game is the first of three games against Colorado before the season's end. The 'Caps will close out the 2013 MLS regular season in a home-and-home series against the Rapids - first in Denver on October 19th, and finally in Vancouver on October 27th. The Whitecaps will be joined in Denver by Scottish striker Kenny Miller fresh off scoring a memorable goal against England at Wembley earlier this week. Miller and Camilo will look to add to their combined 21 goals this season as the Caps look to improve on their standing in the table. Elsewhere, Real Salt Lake visit the LA Galaxy, Portland faces FC Dallas at home, and Seattle travels to Houston to take on the Dynamo. Wow. It's going to an exciting weekend of football and table-watching as we enter the final stretch to the playoffs and MLS Cup.
