Atlanta United Broadcaster and Analyst Jason Longshore joined John and Hugh on Thursday morning to preview the upcoming game with Real Salt Lake and detailed what he sees as the key to the game for United.

"I think it's on the flanks. Their two wingers against Atlanta's backs. That's going to decide the match," Longshore said. "Two wingers who are great on the dribble and like to go for goal themselves and United has to contain that or Real Salt Lake really gets going."

Jason also looked at United's mindset after dealing with a tough loss against Red Bulls.

"I think they're tired, that's probably the biggest thing. They've been playing really well, maybe different than some fans expected, defensive, but they've been creating shots, just not scoring as many goals right now. The possession is similar, they're just not converting and you expect they'll break out of that slump."
