Sporting KC captain Johnny Russell is in the midst of his best scoring form of the season, bagging goals in five straight games to take his tally to 10 on the season - tying his season high with Sporting from 2018. Ahead of Sunday night's road match with Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Russell joined Rob Brenton from 610 Sports Radio to discuss a host of topics on The Nutmeg Podcast.
Named Sporting captain ahead of the 2021 campaign, Russell has caught fire as the regular season approaches its conclusion. The Scotsman recently signed a new contract through the 2023 season with an option for 2024, and has now tallied 37 goals and 37 assists across 121 appearances in all competitions for the club.
Sporting KC returns to action this weekend when the team heads north of the border for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, taking on Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place on Sunday, Oct 17. Kickoff is set for 9 p.m. CT on Bally Sports KC, while ESPN 94.5 FM and La Grande 1340 AM will carry the game locally on the radio.
