TORONTO - Toronto FC is close to full health for its home opener Saturday against D.C. United.

Brazilian forward Gilberto and English fullback Bradley Orr have both recovered from injury.

The only players still missing are backup midfielder Jeremy Hall and teenage striker Jordan Hamilton, both of whom are nursing hamstring injuries.

Hall is expected to be back in training Monday.

A bigger question-mark is the grass pitch at BMO Field. Close to five centimetres of snow is expected overnight.

Toronto won its MLS season opener last weekend, winning 2-1 in Seattle. D.C. United lost its opener 3-0 to the visiting Chicago Fire.
