Team News

  • Hector Jimenez is struggling with a calf strain and is likely to miss the game against the Chicago Fire.
  • Josh Williams is also a doubt for the Columbus Crew as he deals with foot contusion.
  • Steven Kinney returns to full fitness, meaning the Chicago Fire have no injury concerns ahead of the game, besides some calf tightness for Bakary Soumare.


  • The Columbus Crew found their scoring touch against the Portland Timbers in their last game, scoring three times in a high scoring draw. But what was of concern was the fact that they conceded three, cancelling out their good work in attack.
  • The Chicago Fire are resurgent at the moment, following up the sensational 5-4 win over the New York Red Bulls with a 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City. Frank Yallop has finally got his team scoring goals, but can they keep it tight at the back?
  • Will both sides' new-found attacking potency come to the fore? It could be a case of who can concedes fewer.
