The New England Revolution will visit BMO Field for the second time this season on Saturday evening as they are set to kickoff against Toronto FC at 5 pm. The last time the Revs were in Toronto they recorded their first ever victory at BMO Field and the team will hope for a similar result tonight.

Head coach Jay Heaps has made one change to the starting lineup that defeated Chivas USA last weekend as Teal Bunbury has gotten the nod over Diego Fagundez. It should be noted that the midfield trio of Lee Nguyen, Daigo Kobayashi and Kelyn Rowe will be starting together for only the third time this season.

The big news is that Jermaine Jones is on the bench. The German-American could be used as a substitute which would led to a much desired showdown between Michael Bradley and Jones.

Lineups

Revolution Starting Lineup: Bobby Shuttleworth; Darrius Barnes, Jose Goncalves, A.J. Soares, Andrew Farrell; Scott Caldwell; Kelyn Rowe, Lee Nguyen, Daigo Kobayashi, Teal Bunbury; Charlie Davies

Bench: Knighton, Alston, Fagundez, Jones, Mullins, Neumann, Taylor

Toronto Starting Lineup: Bendik,Hagglund, Orr, Henry, Bloom, Oduro, Warner, Bradley, Osorio, Moore, Gilberto
