Can New England Revolution salvage their flailing play-off aspirations?
On Saturday, despite leading through Tommy McNamara, the Revs were beaten 2-1 in Harrison by New York Red Bulls.
This means Bruce Arena’s team have thrown away 29 points from winning positions this season, by far the most of any club in MLS.
So, having only won one of their last six, New England sit one place below the play-off line, three points adrift of Columbus Crew.
Will last season’s record-breaking Supporters’ Shield winners leave Texas with three massive points?
As for Houston Dynamo, even if they win this one, their post-season hopes could be mathematically over.
El Naranja played out a goalless draw with Sporting Kansas City at the weekend; Matias Vera sent off on the cusp of half time.
So, having accumulated just five points from their last nine outings, form that saw Paulo Nagamura sacked, Houston are 13th in the west, 13 points below seventh.
Thus, New England will see this is a great opportunity for victory at PNC Stadium.
