  DID YOU KNOW?
  • On Wednesday, the Union parted ways with manager Peter Nowak, who won the 2004 MLS Cup as coach of D.C. United. His former assistant, John Hackworth, will be taking over on an interim basis.
  • Union forward Lionard Pajoy will be suspended for this match.
  • These teams met in the fourth round of this year's Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Philadelphia won that game 2-1, advancing to the quarterfinals.
  • Last season, D.C. United won nine matches. Through 15 this season, the Black and Red have already won eight, putting them on pace to win double their 2011 total. Comparably, the Philadelphia Union has struggled in 2012, picking up just two wins in 11 matches. If that pace holds, Philadelphia’s wins will amount to just barely half of its 2011 total (11).
  • United won its third consecutive match on May 26 over New England, a 3-2 victory at RFK Stadium. It's the club's longest winning streak since winning four in a row in June 2008.
