Coming off back-to-back wins, the Fire will have a chance to extend their run with a third victory against a Crew side that has been struggling of late.
That record stands almost exactly opposite of the club coming to Columbus for a match Saturday, the Chicago Fire.
Over the first two months of the season the Fire went without a win, and the club started off May with a 3-2 loss to Real Salt Lake. But the Fire followed that loss up with a win over New York and then took three points off Sporting Kansas City.
Just one point back of Columbus with a game in hand, the Fire on Saturday (7:30 p.m. ET, MLS Live) will have a great chance to climb at least one step up the table in the East, while a win for the Crew would help the team keep itself close in the fight for a top-half finish in the conference.
