With two games left in the regular season DC is looking to clinch home field advantage and win the Supporter's Shield. Chicago is trying to keep it's playoff hopes alive by staying up with KC and keeping the surging Beckspiracy at bay.
This is the third and final regular season meeting between the Chicago Fire and DC United. DC United won the first meeting at RFK and drew at Toyota Park with the awe inspiring Jaime Moreno/Matt Pickens show.
Unfortunately Jaime will be with the Bolivian National Team this weekend as Bolivia begins World Cup qualifiers. DC will also be missing Bobby Boswell (bad behavior), probably Josh Gros (head injuries again), and possibly Fred (groin). The Fire will be missing Jeff Curtin and Justin Mapp to injury.
Hope and Dreams for Match 2.29
1. The Hunchback of Chicago meets Clyde Simms and is subsequently shut down.
2. Luci and Benny both get goals.
3. Gros gets better and has not done any permanent damage.
4. McTavish goal.
