DID YOU KNOW?
  • Despite being separated by only six points, Philadelphia is one point off top spot in the East (with two games in hand) while San Jose can only better the two expansion sides in the West.

  • The Union has played three games in the Pacific Time Zone, losing each 1-0. Overall, Philadelphia holds a 2-4-2 away record.
  • Form favors Philadelphia, however. The Union has only lost one game in the last eight, with San Jose entering the game winless in four.
  • Steven Lenhart picked up his fifth caution of the year midweek in a 2-0 loss to Chivas USA and will sit this match out through suspension.
  • Philadelphia sent left back Jordan Harvey to the Vancouver Whitecaps this week for an undisclosed amount of allocation money. Jordan had started all but one match for the Union in 2011.
  • After a breakout season last year in which he scored 14 and assisted 10, Sebastien Le Toux has scored just once in 2011.
