Sporting Kansas City will seek to win consecutive games for the first time this season when they host Dallas on Wednesday at Children's Mercy Park.
The away team, on the other hand, aimed to extend their unbeaten streak to five games and continue their ascent up the league standings.
When the teams met on Sunday, Sporting Kansas City easily defeated Portland Timbers 4-1. Peter Vermes' team fell behind to Franck Boli's opener, but Erik Thommy equalised before halftime, and second-half goals from Daniel Salloi and Felipe Hernandez, each side of Larrys Mabiala's own goal, completed the comeback.
As a result, the Wizards have moved up to 12th position in the MLS table's Western Conference and are now one win away from a play-in spot.
FC Dallas had to settle for a share of the spoils for the second game in a row after a 1-1 tie with the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday at PayPal Park.
Nico Estevez's men were on course to go home empty-handed after falling behind to Benjamin Kikanovic's 70th-minute strike before Nkosi Tafari levelled matters in second-half stoppage time.
With 23 points from 14 games, the Hoops are fourth in the Western Conference standings, three points behind the top spot despite having played one fewer game.
The visitors have not performed well on the road recently, with only one victory in five away matches ahead of Wednesday's meeting.
