CHICAGO FIRE vs HOUSTON DYNAMO TOYOTA PARK, Bridgeview, Ill. 7:30 p.m. CT (CSN-Chi; KHOU/Azteca)

April 23, 2011 (WEEK 5; MLS Game 54)

Looking to put an end to their winless run, the Chicago Fire remain at Toyota Park when they take on the Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening. The Fire have lost three in a row, after a 2-1 defeat by the LA Galaxy in their return home following a two-game road swing. The Dynamo have won back-to-back games, last a late 1-0 victory against the New England Revolution in Houston. REFEREE: Mark Geiger.

The Dynamo had won five games in a row vs. Chicago.  The Dynamo have won the last three meetings between the teams at Robertson Stadium.  Coaches record: Dominic Kinnear v CHI: P15 W7 L5 D3 … Carlos de los Cobos vs. HOU: P2 W1 L1 D0 CHICAGO FIRE The Chicago Fire saw their losing streak reach three games, falling 2-1 to the LA Galaxy on Sunday afternoon at Toyota Park. The Fire have 4 points from 5 matches on the year, in a tie for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. LAST MATCH  The Galaxy took the lead in the 42nd minute through Chad Barrett. Miguel Lopez crossed a ball in from the right, finding Barrett completely wide open at the penalty spot, and the former Fire striker calmly took a touch before slotting his shot inside the left post and past goalkeeper Jon Conway.  Omar Gonzalez doubled the lead for the visitors in the 72nd minute, rising above the Fire defense to head home a Lopez corner kick.  Dominic Oduro pulled one back with his first goal in a Fire uniform in the 89th minute, rounding Gonzalez in the box before blasting an angled shot past 'keeper Donovan Ricketts and inside the far post.  Fire head coach Carlos de los Cobos made three changes to the team that lost 4-2 to the Portland Timbers at Jeld-Wen Field. Jon Conway came in between the posts for Sean Johnson, Josip Mikulic replaced Dasan Robinson in the back four, and Davis Paul started in place of Patrick Nyarko in midfield.  CHICAGO FIRE (4-4-2): Jon Conway - Jalil Anibaba, Josip Mikulic, Cory Gibbs, Gonzalo Segares - Davis Paul (Patrick Nyarko 46), Logan Pause, Michael Videira (Dominic Oduro 59), Marco Pappa - Gaston Puerari (Orr Barouch 70), Diego Chaves. TEAM NEWS  After conceding four goals against Portland in his fourth consecutive start of the season, Sean Johnson was replaced in goal by Jon Conway.  "He's a young player and that's very important to understand," de los Cobos said. "The only way to learn is (by) making mistakes. … He's working and has the support of everybody."

MLS GAME INFORMATION


        

Conway was called upon to make just one save while beaten twice for goals in the LA match, but de los Cobos said the veteran will start against Houston. "Before the start of the season, we thought of this possible situation with a young player (like Johnson)," de los Cobos said. "For that reason we brought in Conway." The Fire have conceded 10 goals in their last four games, allowing multiple goals on each occasion, after opening the year with a 1-1 draw at FC Dallas. "Those little breakdowns that we've been having defensively have been hurting us a lot," defender Gonzalo Segares said. "That definitely brought the momentum down." The Fire were also forced to finish a man down against LA when Cory Gibbs was injured after all three substitutes had been used. Gibbs is listed as doubtful for this weekend with a hamstring strain. “When Cory Gibbs was injured it made the situation even more difficult for the team, but I was impressed with the personality of the team – they didn’t surrender and continued to fight,” de los Cobos said. “They played hard on defense and even created some scoring opportunities and almost tied the game.” With de los Cobos going to a 4-4-2 tactical scheme, one thing that has been lacking is a central midfield playmaking presence. "That's something that I'm giving the group a chance to [develop]," de los Cobos said to ESPNChicago.com. "Logan [Pause] and Mike [Videira] are guys that are better defensively. That's part of our search, of looking for somebody to come up with those offensive options." Making his fourth appearance of the season – all as a substitute – after his acquisition from Houston, Dominic Oduro scored his first goal for Chicago.

HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo won for the second consecutive game, getting a late goal for a 1-0 victory against the New England Revolution on Sunday afternoon at Robertson Stadium. The Dynamo have 8 points from 5 games on the season, sitting in a three-way tie for second place in the Eastern Conference. LAST MATCH  The talking points began early in the second half, when Bobby Boswell redirected a corner kick goalward. It was cleared from the line by Zack Schilawski and referee Alex Prus did not give the goal, though the Dynamo felt it had crossed the line.  Then in the 86th minute, there was more. Cam Weaver hammered a header from another corner, the ball ricocheting straight up off the crossbar. Hunter Freeman got between Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis and the goal line, and the ball bounced off his arm and into the goal for the winner.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made no changes to the team that defeated Vancouver Whitecaps FC 31 at Robertson Stadium.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-4-2): Tally Hall - Hunter Freeman, Bobby Boswell, Andre Hainault, Corey Ashe Danny Cruz (Colin Clark 75), Lovel Palmer, Geoff Cameron, Brad Davis - Will Bruin (Jason Garey 88), Cam Weaver. TEAM NEWS  The goal didn’t come without a touch of controversy, as Hunter Freeman admitted the ball hit him on the arm before settling into the net.  “It wasn’t a pretty goal, but it was nothing short of what we deserved,” said Kinnear. “We created a lot of chances and, by virtue of watching the replay, I thought we should have had a goal in the run of play. Overall, it was a good attacking night, the goal kind of relieves the frustration and the guys walk off the field happy.”  A year ago, it took the Dynamo the entire season to record back-to-back wins – something they finally achieved in the final two weeks of the season.  “Obviously the goal relieves all of the frustration, and the guys walk off the field happy. It’s good to get another three points,” Kinnear said. “It’s good to get two wins in a row, which we hadn’t done all year, and it leaves us with a good feeling going into next week.  The Dynamo have uncorked 47 attempts at goal over the last two games – a season-high 27 against New England. Fourteen of those have been on target, including six from rookie striker Will Bruin.  “I had my chances that I didn’t finish,” Bruin said. “I try to keep them on frame, but [New England’s Matt] Reis made some pretty good saves. As a forward, you just have to keep pushing forward and creating chances.”  There will be some real lineup decisions for Kinnear this weekend, though. Midfielders Lovel Palmer and Danny Cruz are both listed as out on the club injury report, Cruz forced off the field in the 75th minute against New England with was is diagnosed as a knee hyperextension.  “After I shot, I landed on it wrong. Then, when I went to volley it back into play off the corner kick, it just didn’t feel right. I wanted to get off the field and try to get someone on who was feeling good,” Cruz said.  Corey Ashe maintained his place at left back, making a third consecutive start in the back four after his first two starts of the year came in a midfield role.

“He has been playing very well over there and has played against some good players. … Quickness-wise, you aren’t going to get a lot of balls behind him,” Kinnear said. “On the ball he is very calm, makes good runs, and makes good decisions.” The win gives Houston back-to-back home wins in MLS play for the first time since wins over Chivas USA and Kansas City on April 17 and May 1, 2010. The Dynamo defeated New England at home for the first time ever, snapping a five-game winless streak (0-4-1). “Now we just have to stay positive and take the good from tonight and bring it into next week against Chicago,” midfielder Geoff Cameron said. “We have to use the momentum we have from our play this weekend and use it against Chicago.”

The two sides split the season series in 2010, with both clubs winning their home matches. The Fire earned their first and only win vs. Houston at TOYOTA PARK last season, downing the Dynamo 2-0 on 4/24/2010 while Houston won a 4-3 shootout at Robertson Stadium on 8/21/2010. QUICK KICKS VS. HOUSTON (2-1-2)  FIRE VS. HOUSTON: 1-3-1 5 GF, 9 GA  FIRE @ HOUSTON: 2-3-0 8 GF, 9 GA  The 2006 season was a big for both clubs – the Fire moved into TOYOTA PARK while the Dynamo moved from San Jose to Houston  Prior to 2010, Houston was unbeaten at Toyota Park, holding a 3-0-1 record, scoring 9 goals and conceding 3  Saturday’s match will be the first meeting between the two sides since the Fire traded Calen Carr to Houston for Dominic Oduro. Carr has yet to feature for Houston, while Oduro is coming off his first goal for the Fire in Sunday’s 2-1 loss to LA.  The Fire are 5-3-5 all-time in the sixth match of the season with the last loss coming in a 3-1 defeat at New England 5/6/07  The Fire are 3-4-0 all-time when riding a three match regular season losing streak. The last time the Fire entered a match on a three-game losing streak, they defeated San Jose 3-0 on 9/29/10.

A LOOK AT THE FIRE The Chicago Fire (1-3-1, 4 pts.) enter their 14th season of MLS play after posting a 9-12-9 record in 2010. Disappointed with missing out on the playoffs for just the second time in club history, the Fire have made many changes to the roster for 2011, bringing in the likes of veteran U.S. defender Cory Gibbs, Croatians Josip Mikulic (defender) and Marko Maric (midfielder) as well as the Uruguayan strike tandem of Diego Chaves and Gaston Puerari. In all, the club is returning 14 players to the roster, meaning half the players opening the season are new to the club in 2011. 2010 MLS All-Star selection and Goal of the Year winner midfielder th Marco Pappa returns for his 4 MLS season and looks to build upon his team leading seven goals in 2010. Joining Pappa in the midfielder are 2010 Fire MVP and newly named captain Logan Pause and last season’s assist leader Patrick Nyarko, while 2011 MLS Combine MVP Jalil Anibaba will patrol the backline with offseason acquisitions Gibbs and Mikulic.

  FIRE FALL AT WEEKEND TO LA GALAXY The Chicago Fire (1-3-1, 4pts.) look ahead to Saturday’s match vs. Houston after falling in three matches over an eight day span last week. The last match of that streak came with a 2-1 loss to the LA Galaxy on Sunday afternoon at TOYOTA PARK. The Fire looked to have the better of the play early with the Uruguayan strike duo of Gaston Puerari and Diego Chaves combining well. Perhaps the home side’s best chance of the first half came when Puerari beat out Galaxy defender Leonardo to a lobbed ball from Chaves at midfield. Puerari went th in one-on-one with Galaxy goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts but chipped his effort just wide right of the Galaxy goal in the 18 minute. Another opportunity came 11 minutes later when Puerari floated a ball forward for onrushing Fire defender Gonzalo Segares. The Costa Rican international went in alone on goal but placed a low shot just wide right of Ricketts’ goal again to keep things level at 0-0. nd

Absorbing the pressure, the Galaxy drew first blood in the 42 minute when Frankie Hejduk’s deep throw-in found Miguel Lopez on the right. The Galaxy striker whipped in a low ball for former Fire forward Chad Barrett, who finished easily past goalkeeper Jon Conway to take the visitors into the half up 1-0. Looking to stretch the Galaxy defense more, Ghanaian winger Patrick Nyarko entered the match for Davis Paul to start the second half. The Fire th provided danger early as Marco Pappa’s 50 minute corner kick found the head of Jalil Anibaba, but the rookie defender put the ball high over Rickett’s goal. De los Cobos looked to infuse more offense as his team looked for the equalizer, inserting Ghanaian striker Dominic Oduro for Michael Videira in the th th 59 minute and Orr Barouch for Puerari in the 69 . Moments after making the team’s final substitution, Fire center back Cory Gibbs left the match with a left leg injury after a 50/50 challenge with Galaxy striker Mike Magee. Following Gibbs exit from the field, the Galaxy found their second goal off a corner kick when Lopez crossed for center back Omar nd Gonzalez who coolly headed to the top left corner in the 72 minute. The Fire couldn’t find a rhythm late until second half substitute Dominic Oduro began to break into the box down the left. His first foray into the Galaxy area saw the Ghanaian striker lay off a pass for Marco Pappa at the top of the box, but the Guatemalan winger put his effort wide left of the Galaxy frame. Three minutes later Oduro collected a lofted clearance from Anibaba out of the back, beating Galaxy defender Leonardo down the right to cut into the th box where he finished past Ricketts from an acute angle to take the score to 2-1 in the 89 minute. The Fire looked for the equalizer late with Oduro earning two corner kicks and Conway venturing forward both times, however, the Fire couldn’t tie the match before referee Niko Batsis blew the final whistle. FIRE GOES GREEN VS. HOUSTON For the third straight season, the Chicago Fire are Going Green to raise environmental awareness in the Chicago land area. As part of tonight’s match, the Chicago Fire are wearing commemorative kits which feature green lettering and numbering, a “Fire Goes Green” patch and the “FIRE” watermark across the chest in green. The commemorative jerseys will be up for silent auction at the Foundation tent on the northeast concourse from the time the Toyota Park gates open at 6pm through the end of halftime, with all proceeds going to benefit the Chicago Fire Foundation. The Fire will be off-setting 100% of the energy used at Toyota Park during the game with renewable energy certificates, taking $5 off parking for hybrid vehicles and giving away flower-seed packets to those in attendance for the match. TWO GOALS FROM 100 AT TOYOTA PARK The Chicago Fire currently sit at 98 all-time regular season goals at Toyota Park since opening the soccer-specific stadium on June 11, 2006. As the Fire have scored at least two goals in the last three matches against the Dynamo, there’s a decent chance 100 could be hit Saturday night. Below is a list of milestone goals scored by Fire players so far at Toyota Park: # 1 10 25 50 75 98

NEW, YOUNG CHICAGO FIRE FACES The makeup of the 2011 Chicago Fire continues to be new and young. The most recent signing last week of Open Tryout winner Pari Pantazopoulos took the Fire roster to 29 players, 16 of which have joined the club since the 4-1 season ending win at Chivas USA on October 23. The story of the 2011 Fire isn’t just all the new players that make up the roster but also the youth that has engulfed the team. The average age of the squad is 23 years, nine months, with 20 of the 29 players aged 25 or under.

  LOGAN PAUSE MOVES INTO FOUR IN ALL-TIME FIRE APPEARANCES th Nine-year Chicago Fire veteran Logan Pause tied Jesse Marsch for fourth on the club’s all-time regular season appearance list with his 200 match coming on March 26 vs. Sporting KC. The Fire captain then took sole possession of the fourth spot with his appearance in the club’s 2-1 loss to Seattle on April 9. Entering Saturday’s match vs. Houston, Pause sits at 203 regular season appearances for the club. Having averaged a minimum of 21 matches in each of his nine years with the club, if Pause’s form holds true for this season, he will move into second all-time in Fire regular season appearances. Next up in the captain’s sites is the player he modeled himself after, Chris Armas, who appeared in 214 regular season matches for the club from 1998-07. Below see the “Big Five” when it comes to Fire MLS and All Competitions appearances, along with their yearly averages of games played.

**2011 not factored into average 2010 YEAR IN REVIEW The Fire ushered in a new era with the hiring of former El Salvador national team boss Carlos de los Cobos ahead of the 2010 campaign. The new manager brought in a new system to the club, while welcoming in Designated Players in Mexican striker Nery Castillo and Swedish winger Freddie Ljungberg. Despite the acquisitions, de los Cobos’ side came up just short of the 2010 MLS playoffs, missing the postseason for just the second time in club history. At season’s end, two legendary players announced their retirement, with the Fire bidding goodbye to U.S. giant Brian McBride and the last remaining “Fire Original”, defender C.J. Brown who spent all 13 seasons of his MLS career in the Windy City, appearing in 371 matches for the club across all competitions. FIRE PRESEASON NOTES In preparation for the 2011 MLS season, the Chicago Fire broke up the club’s preseason into three phases, the initial of which saw the side spend two weeks at the Bridgeview Soccer & Sports Dome – the first instance in 14 seasons the club has spent an extended amount of time training in Chicagoland. The team then spent 12 days in Ave Maria, FL, training and paying a visit to the club’s Juniors organization based in Naples while fitting in three friendlies. After a brief return to Chicago, the team set off for Phase 3 of preseason, making the club’s debut appearance in the Carolina Challenge Cup in Charleston, SC. The Fire joined fellow MLS sides DC United and Toronto FC as well as tournament hosts, USL-Pro’s Charleston Battery in the four-team round robin tournament.

DYNAMO AT CHICAGO Houston will seek a third consecutive MLS victory for the first time since June 2009 when they take on the Chicago Fire Saturday night. Currently tied for second in the Eastern Conference, the Dynamo have dominated the all-time series against Chicago with a 6-3-1 overall record and a 3-1-1 record at Toyota Park. The Fire’s 2-0 win over the Dynamo on April 24 last year broke a five-game Chicago losing streak in the series. Houston rebounded with a dramatic 4-3 win on August 21 and is 6-1 in its last seven games against the Fire.

DYNAMO NOTES  The Dynamo enter Saturday’s game on a five-game road unbeaten streak, dating back to a 3-1 win at D.C. United on Sept. 25, 2010. Houston is 2-0-3 on the road since a 4-3 loss at Kansas City on Sept. 22, 2010. This year, the Dynamo have tied both road matches 1-1 (at Seattle, at New York).  Houston is off to the second-best five-game start in club history, collecting eight points from its first five games. The only better start came in the club’s inaugural season of 2006, when the Dynamo opened the season with nine points in their first five games (3-2-0).  In two away games this year, Houston has been outshot 48-15 (17-7 on goal) but has come away with two ties. In three contests at home, the Dynamo have outshot opponents 66-23 (17-7 on goal), going 2-1.  Sunday’s match against New England yielded the first shutout for the Dynamo in 2011. Goalkeeper Tally Hall made just one save in recording the clean sheet, the second of his MLS career and his sixth for Houston in all competitions. It was Hall’s first shutout since a SuperLiga match against Puebla on July 21, 2010. Through Sunday’s games, the Dynamo defense ranked fifth in MLS with four goals allowed.  Houston midfielder Geoff Cameron is expected to make his 100th career appearance for the Dynamo in all competitions on Saturday, making him the 14th player in club history to reach that milestone. Currently, Cameron has started 77 of his 99 Houston appearances. Brian Mullan remains Houston’s all-time leader with 184 appearances in all competitions from 2006-10.  Defender Bobby Boswell and midfielder Lovel Palmer are the only two Houston players to play all 570 minutes of the club’s season so far in all competitions, including the team’s U.S. Open Cup qualifier.  The Dynamo are expected to be without forwards Calen Carr (concussion), Brian Ching (rib separation), and Sergio Koke (visa); midfielders Danny Cruz (knee hyperextension), Francisco Navas Cobo (hamstring strain), and Lovel Palmer (lower leg tendinitis); and defender Jermaine Taylor (foot sprain) due to injury.


DEFENSE ON THE RISE Houston’s defense, which tied for the second worst goals-allowed total in Major League Soccer in 2010, is off to the second-best start in club history through five MLS games. The Dynamo have allowed four goals so far, second only to their 2007 total of three goals allowed in five games. Houston’s previous starts: Year Rec. GF-GA Game 5 Result Final Record Final Def.

UP NEXT: FRIDAY NIGHT ORANGE OUT Next week the Dynamo return home for a Friday night matchup with D.C. United, Houston’s only home game to be televised nationally in English in 2011. Former Houston goalkeeper Pat Onstad returns to Houston as a D.C. United player-coach, and others in the game who have played for both teams include D.C. forward Joseph Ngwenya and Houston defender Bobby Boswell.

RESERVES REPORT: HOUSTON, CHICAGO MEET ON SUNDAY The MLS Reserve League has returned in 2011 after a two-season hiatus. The Dynamo Reserves (1-0) will be in action on Sunday morning, taking on the Fire Reserves (0-0) at Toyota Park. Houston opened its campaign with a 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City on April 11. Jason Garey scored the game’s only goal from a Francisco Navas Cobo free kick, while Tyler Deric made three saves to record the shutout.

NEW BLOOD The Dynamo’s offseason moves yielded 10 players new to the orange. Houston acquired three players via draft (Kofi Sarkodie, Will Bruin, Evan Newton), three via trade (Colin Clark, Jason Garey, Jordan Graye), two via international signings (Hunter Freeman, Jermaine Taylor), and two via the Dynamo Academy (Alex Dixon, Josue Soto). Houston has since added forward Calen Carr via trade.

LOCAL FLAVOR Almost one-third of the Dynamo’s roster has close ties to Texas. Six players are native Texans (Bobby Boswell, Tyler Deric, Alex Dixon, Hunter Freeman, Francisco Navas Cobo, Josue Soto), Colin Clark attended SMU in Dallas, and Jason Garey (Gonzales, La.) has a sister, Melissa, who was a standout player at Texas A&M University in College Station.

TAR HEEL NATION The Dynamo’s tertiary color – Space City Blue – seems especially appropriate this season given the team’s North Carolina connections. Five Houston players played college soccer at the University of North Carolina: Eddie Robinson (1996-2000), Corey Ashe (2003-06), Jordan Graye (2005-09), Tyler Deric (2007), and Alex Dixon (2008-10).
