Revolution vs. Dynamo 2013 Lineup Projection: Same as Last Week?

USA TODAY Sports

The Revolution have most of their roster available for the night's encounter with Houston, and look likely to field the same lineup they did against San Jose. Who do you think they should run out?

The New England Revolution have nearly their entire squad available to them on Saturday night against the Houston Dynamo. Only Kevin Alston, Juan Agudelo, and Chris Tierney were the only ones listed on this week's injury report, with Tierney only questionable, leaving just about a full complement for Jay Heaps.

Given the success seen against San Jose, it seems unlikely that Jay Heaps will elect to change things up against Houston. The defensive core should remain solid, apart from the possible replacement of Chris Tierney. If that comes to pass, expect to see Darrius Barnes reprise his occasional left-back role.

The only true difference might be Dimitry Imbongo getting the start at striker over Chad Barrett. Imbongo's goal - and his obvious ability to get under the Houston defense's skin - gives him a strong argument, but despite going goalless against San Jose, Barrett still played well enough to reinforce his claim for a starting role. There's always Jerry Bengtson, of course, but it's starting to seem as though the striker has finally lost the confidence of his coaching staff.

Here's the lineup I predict for tonight's contest:

L to R, 4-1-4-1: Bobby Shuttleworth; Tierney, Jose Goncalves, Stephen McCarthy, Andrew Farrell; Scott Caldwell; Diego Fagundez, Kelyn Rowe, Lee Nguyen, Saer Sene; Chad Barrett
