Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis doesn't think that it will take any time at all for Kyle Beckerman and Javier Morales to mesh their games come playoff time, which looks to be Oct. 29 at Rio Tinto Stadium against Seattle.
The two midfielders haven't played a minute together since Morales' nasty ankle injury May 7. Meanwhile, as Morales has come back healthy to the squad, Beckerman has been absent because of international duty with the U.S. National Team and a three-game MLS suspension following a red card for head butting during a 3-0 loss to Chicago on Sept. 28.
Morales made his first appearance since May midway through the second half of that Chicago game. Beckerman did start that game, but was gone after the 11th minute.
Kreis said that Beckerman and Morales bonded immediately their first game together.
"Javier and Kyle share some sort of innate relationship," Kreis said.
