FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution enter a three-game road trip with a sour taste in their mouth after Saturday night's 2-1 loss to the Houston Dynamo at Gillette Stadium.
Wednesday night is the first of those three, as the Revolution head to Colorado to take on the Rapids. After that, New England plays at Columbus and D.C. United.
As of Wednesday, neither the Revs or their next three opponents hold a playoff spot. But New England is close, five points out of the Eastern Conference's fifth and final spot, which currently belongs to Houston after the Dynamo defeated the Revs on Saturday.
"We've got to put this one behind us," said Chris Tierney after the loss. "It was a big game. We didn't get the result we wanted. But if we go on the road here and get a couple of results, we're right back in the mix.
"We're just past the halfway point of our season here, and we still don't feel that we're playing at full go. So if we start to play the way we know we're capable of and get on a roll, I'm confident that we'll be in a good position, come season's end."
While any three-game road trip is difficult, Tierney and the rest of the Revolution don't believe Saturday's result made it any tougher on them.
"Games on the road are games on the road," said Tierney. "Had we taken three [points] here [against Houston], Colorado away is still a tough game, and we're going to get a result. So, our mindset's the same, which is that, whether we play home or away, if we play up to our potential, we're going to win games."
