1. TORONTO FC COACH GREG VANNEY TALKING TO REPORTERS

2. (SOUNDBITE)(English) TORONTO FC HEAD COACH GREG VANNEY SAYING:

“If we have any intention as a group to win the east and to vie for a Supporters Shield this week will be an important week. I think it’s always critical and ideal to get the week off started with three points right and so to try and create more separation from Philly, and the other results aren’t in our control, but obviously those will determine how the Supporters Shield race goes and what kind of distance we can gain if we take three points so I think it’s a vital game, I know the guys, we don’t have to talk about too much of that stuff anymore, I’ll tell you the difference last year was me convincing them a lot that they were ready for these moments and this year I don’t have to tell them, they know exactly what’s going on there. They know what they’re trying to achieve, they’re confident of what they are capable of doing and so they know what’s in front of them.”

3. PHILADELPHIA UNION HEAD COACH JIM CURTIN AT NEWS CONFERENCE

4. (SOUNDBITE)(English) PHILADELPHIA UNION HEAD COACH JIM CURTIN SAYING:

“Confident strikers are difficult to deal with and he’s (Jozy Altidore) at the top of that list now, you know if (Sebastian) Giovinco comes into the mix too that’s as potent as it gets you know those two complement each other very well, are a real handful and are a big reason why Toronto is at the top of the east, you know they’re almost unstoppable when they’re on, when they want to be on so, it will be a real challenge for us we’ll have to be smart, can’t fall asleep for a second with both of them and yeah Jozy’s form is very good right now.”

STORY: Head coach Greg Vanney and Toronto FC look to keep their strong form this weekend against Jim Curtin’s up and coming Philadelphia Union squad.

Toronto FC (13-8-8, 47 points) will be looking to retake the top spot in the Eastern Conference Saturday (September 24) when they meet the Union after New York City FC (13-9-9, 48 points) moved one point clear of Toronto with a win late Friday (September 23).

Vanney is confident his club knows what’s at stake and they are ready for the upcoming challenges.

“Last year was me convincing them a lot that they were ready for these moments and this year I don’t have to tell them, they know exactly what’s going on there. They know what they’re trying to achieve, they’re confident of what they are capable of doing,” Vanney told reporters in Toronto.

If the playoffs began today Philadelphia (11-11-8, 41 points) would qualify with the fourth seed in the east but head coach Jim Curtin is aware his team faces a big test this weekend.

“Confident strikers are difficult to deal with and he’s (Jozy Altidore) at the top of that list now, you know if (Sebastian) Giovinco comes into the mix too that’s as potent as it gets,” Curtin said at a news conference. “It will be a real challenge for us we’ll have to be smart, can’t fall asleep for a second.”

Sebastian Giovinco, last season’s MLS Most Valuable Player, is scheduled to return for the matchup with the Union after missing Toronto’s last two games with an injury.
