FCD will play host to San Jose on Saturday looking to shake off its poor form of late.
The Earthquakes will be without Chris Wondolowski who is away with the U.S. national team, but will be looking to take a second win on the bounce against a Dallas side the Earthquakes beat 2-1 less than a month ago, despite spending half of the match shorthanded.

San Jose followed that win up with a loss to the Seattle Sounders, but bounced back with a win over Houston in its last outing.
Dallas last got a win in April against Toronto and has fallen down to fourth in the Western Conference, despite having played at least one game more than every other team.
