After a much-needed victory, the Revolution are in Portland tonight to take on the Timbers. With a depleted defensive core, and only four days to prepare, do the Revs have enough to earn a result? Join us in our live discussion thread!

Coming off of the club's first ever victory over Philadelphia, the Revs are looking to build on their current form in one of the most difficult stadiums in Major League Soccer.

As if losing Kevin Alston and AJ Soares weren't enough, the Revolution will be without Chris Tierney tonight who is serving a suspension for his reckless challenge on Sebastien LeToux. Enter Bilal Duckett and Darrius Barnes. Revolution newcomer, and European veteran, Jose Gonçalves will be donning the armband tonight, showing just how quickly he's emerged as a leader at the club.

Perhaps the most uplifting and encouraging sign is the fact that the rest of the lineup remains unchanged. The Revs are sticking with what worked on Saturday and playing a 4-1-4-1, with Ryan Guy and Diego Fagunez on the wings, and Kelyn Rowe and Lee Nguyen in the middle.

Join the discussion in the comments section and spend your late Thursday Night with us as we see if the Revs can steal a result at JELD-WEN Field!
