Union goalie Zac MacMath has started every game for the last two years, but his role soon will change.
When the Union signed two-time Algerian World Cup goalie Rais Mbohli last week, interim manager Jim Curtin said that the 28-year-old keeper would be the starter as soon as he was in game shape.
Mbohli didn't make the trip to Kansas City for Friday's 1-1 draw. It's possible he could get his first start in the Union's next Major League Soccer game, Saturday against the Montreal Impact at PPL Park in Chester.
MacMath, who will turn 23 on Thursday, said that the news of his becoming the new backup was difficult to digest. He discussed the situation after Monday's practice.
