DID YOU KNOW?
  • New York will be the more rested side in this match, as New England had a game Wednesday, which ended in a 1-1 draw at home to Houston.
  • The Red Bulls experienced a disappointing 2-2 draw at home against Eastern Conference bottom side Chicago last weekend. Thierry Henry scored to re-take the Golden Boot lead with 12 goals.

  • Revs goalkeeper Matt Reis will miss this match after receiving a red card at the end of Wednesday's match for what referee Michael Kennedy said was "offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures."
  • New York had a rough Wednesday, though it didn't play a game. A win by Kansas City and a draw by Houston saw both teams leapfrog the Red Bulls in the standings, as they dropped from third to fifth in the Eastern Conference.
  • The Revolution are currently eighth out of nine teams in the Eastern Conference, with a 4-10-11 record. The team is winless in five matches.
  • New York has won just once in its last 11 league matches.
  • New England announced the signing of Moroccan international striker Monsef Zerka on Thursday
