The New England Revolution will look to break out of free-fall on Saturday night in Foxboro as they welcome the Chicago Fire for the season's second encounter with their midwest rivals. The last encounter between the two resulted in a 1-1 draw with penalties at either end; as you may remember, Bobby Shuttleworth saved one near the end of regulation.
There are no real surprises in the lineup. With Lee Nguyen suspended, Daigo Kobayshi and Kelyn Rowe are partnering in the center of midfield, hoping to capture the same sort of chemistry that Kobayashi and Nguyen developed during the Revs' winning run earlier this season. Jerry Bengtson also makes an appearance on the bench, his first since returning from World Cup duty with Honduras.
