The New England Revolution will return home for 13 days, following Mondays match in Utah against Real Salt Lake. Returning to New England will be welcomed with open arms, as the Revs enter their 4th of July match with a dismal 0-6-2 road record.But as previously stated, theres one more match away from home, and New England will be looking to snap a seven-game winless skid in the process.Real Salt Lake is 5-1-2 at home this season, and stands in fourth place in the Western Conference with a 7-3-5 overall record (26 points).If Real Salt Lake was in the Eastern Conference, their 26 points would be good for second place in the East, and just one point out of first.With no teamrunning away with the conference title, the Revolution sit a little easier in last place in the East. New England is 3-8-6 on the year, and their 15 points is just 12 points out of first place.Still, even talking about first place is a stretch when mentioning the Revolution as of late. They havent recorded a win since May 14, and have lost five of their last seven since, to go along with a pair of draws.The last time New England and Real Salt Lake met, it was April 9, and RSL came into Gillette Stadium and defeated the Revs 2-nil.Real Salt Lake also defeated New England in 2009 by a score of 6-0, and again in 2010 by a score of 5-0.You certainly remember, said Revs coach Steve Nicol, when asked about Real Salt Lakes previous wins over his squad. But what it should do, if youre any sort of professional, is it should motivate you to make sure it doesnt happen again.--Here is an injury report for Mondays match:PROBABLE: Stephen McCarthy (shoulder subluxation) QUESTIONABLE: Ousmane Dabo (quadriceps strain), Didier Domi (achilles tendonitis) OUT: Kheli Dube (whiplash)

Diego Fagundez scores two goals; Revs rally to beat Crew, 2-1

FOXBORO -- Diego Fagundez scored two goals in 10 minutes and the New England Revolution rallied from an early deficit to beat the Columbus Crew 2-1 on Sunday.

Fagundez has scored all three of his goals this season in the last two games. The Revolution (3-4-4) have back-to-back wins, for the first time this season, after a five-match winless streak.

A 22-year-old homegrown, Fagundez ran onto a free ball on the left flank, sped up and pushed home the finish into the far corner in the 34th minute to cap the scoring.

Just outside the box, Ola Kamara side-netted a running half-volley - off a perfectly placed pass by Wil Trapp from well-beyond midfield - to give Columbus (6-5-1) a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute. After a turnover by the Crew in their own territory, Fagundez tied it moments later. Kelyn Rowe won the ball, tapped it to Lee Nguyen, who hit a streaking Kei Kamara for a one-timer that set up a tap-in half-volley.

Cody Cropper had his second consecutive shutout, including four saves, for New England.

Andrew Farrell was sent off for a stud-up challenge on Waylon Francis in the third minute of injury time.
