Vermes' squad is on the rise..
Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Sporting KC has now won 5 straight home matches. Since a horrendous ten game span, they boys have gone 5-2-2. No longer do they have a losing record (10-10-4).

I know the trajectory of this season has not gone how fans are used to it going, but I think this team is in good position to finish out the season strong.
