We probably use the phrase "must-win match" or "huge match" a bit too much, but this is a huge match. This is a must win match. The Dynamo are in the playoffs by a single point and need to get the full three points tonight to ensure they stay ahead of the Columbus Crew (who are hosting the Union).
Drew Fischer is your match referee. This is his fifth career MLS match and he's yet to show a red card or award a penalty. He's averaging 2.2 yellow cards/match.
The Dynamo have Nathan Sturgis (ankle) and Giles Barnes (quad) are both out tonight. Corey Ashe has recovered from his hamstring issue and will start.
New England have some major injury issues with Lee Nguyen ( shoulder surgery) and Saer Sene (knee ACL surgery) both out for the season. Chris Tierney (knee/hamstring) is out todady as well, while Clyde Simms (calf) is probable.
As always have fun, keep it reasonably clean and respect your fellow fans. Always tip your servers and remember, try the veal.
