Tonight the Revolution (5-7-3) host the Seattle Sounders (7-5-4) and look to kick off their three-game homestand with a big win and a full three points. The Sounders come in having played (and won) Tuesday night in their US Open Cup game against Chivas USA, but have gone without a win in their last seven MLS matches.
Revolution captain Shalrie Joseph returns to the lineup tonight, pushing Benny Feilhaber back out to the wing. On the back-line, the only notable change is the insertion of Florian Lechner at right back in place of the injured Kevin Alston.
After a thrilling comeback against Toronto FC last weekend, the Revs will look to keep up that same bite and momentum and will hope to add to their 4-1 record against Western Conference opposition.
