After last week's hard fought battle in Portland the Whitecaps return home to face the San Jose Earthquakes. When the Caps played the Quakes at Buck Shaw stadium earlier this season they managed to grind out a 1-1 draw in a match best remembered for Nigel Reo-Coker's "horror" tackle on Sam Cronin, Andy O'Brien pulling an "injured" Steven Lenhart to his feet by the scruff of his neck and some last minute heroics by 'keeper Joe Cannon. Only three points separate the teams in the Western Conference standings, so this is shaping up to be a big game. Here are the highlights from that match to get you ready for Saturday:
