Match preview

Will the former Eastern Conference leaders get back on course for top spot following a shock midweek defeat in the Windy City?

On Wednesday night, Philadelphia were beaten 1-0 at Solider Field by the side then rock bottom of the overall standings, namely Chicago Fire.

This came just three days after Jim Curtin's men had beaten then eastern leaders NYCFC 2-1 at home, courtesy of a 96th minute strike.

Now though, having suffered their first defeat since 16 April, the Union find themselves third, level on points with CF Montréal and RBNY.

Will Philly avoid suffering back-to-back defeats for the first time since 3 September?

Columbus Crew meanwhile are closing in on the play-off places following a crucial midweek victory.

Youngster Sean Zawadzski and then veteran Darlington Nagbe were on target as the Black and Gold beat fellow strugglers Toronto 2-1 at BMO Field.

This means Caleb Porter's men are now unbeaten in four matches, having also defeated Atlanta on the road in this period.

So, the Crew are up to ninth in the east, three points below that all-important dotted line.

Will Philly prove too strong at Lower.com Field, a venue that's only witnessed one home win since 12 March?
