GameThread: DC United at Houston Dynamo

New, 6 comments

DC United journeys out to Robertson Stadium in Houston, where our team has NEVER won.  Should we like our chances today?

Game time: 8:00pm EST

Television: Galavision, ATDHE.net

Projected Starting Lineup:

    Perkins    
Graye Talley   Pena Wallace
  Simms   Morsink  
Najar       Castillo
  Cristman   Allsopp  

Last minute thoughts:  As demonstrated in the scouting report yesterday, the Dynamo are not at their best right now.  But missing key players has never held Houston back before, as the team continues to adapt to player departures and injuries without too much of a detriment to their record.  Meanwhile, United is slowly progressing towards full strength.  Chris Pontius and Andy Najar are set to return to the gameday roster today after sitting out previously.  And while Pontius is not yet at full fitness, look for Najar to earn a start, probably on the right wing.  Troy Perkins will be back in the starting lineup for the first time this month after strong showings in training and a minor injury to Bill Hamid.  Does all that translate into DC's second win of the year?  We'll find out soon enough.
