MLS Preview: Houston Dynamo - New York Red Bulls

Brad Davis is back from the World Cup for Houston, while New York should have Tim Cahill return to the starting lineup.

After going 1-5-0 in six games without the services of U.S. World Cup call-up Brad Davis, the Houston Dynamo get their captain back Friday against the New York Red Bulls.

Davis will be available to share the field with Honduras' Boniek Garcia, who returned from his five-game World Cup absence in Houston's 3-0 loss to Montreal on Sunday. Australia's Tim Cahill, meanwhile, should get the start for New York after making a 12-minute cameo in the Red Bulls' 2-2 draw with Toronto last Friday.

Houston (5-10-2) enters the Fourth of July showdown at BBVA Compass Stadium (8:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN) on a five-game losing streak, while New York (4-5-7) has won just one of its past six games.

It's the teams' second meeting since the Dynamo ousted the Red Bulls from last year's playoffs with a 4-3 aggregate win. New York rolled to a 4-0 triumph over Houston at Red Bull Arena on April 23, with Bradley Wright-Phillips notching a hat trick.

New York left back Roy Miller remains on World Cup duty with quarterfinalist Costa Rica, and midfielder Dax McCarty remains sidelined by a knee injury. Houston center back David Horst is questionable with a groin ailment.
