The New England Revolution stressed the fact that they had to open up each others chest and see what was inside, prior to Wednesday nights match on the road against D.C. United.

What they found was a Revolution team that still had some fight left. As a result, the Revs went into Washington D.C. and won their first game since May 14, defeating United 1-0, thanks to a Stephen McCarthy header in the 73rd minute.

The three points moved New England from last place (ninth) in the Eastern Conference, to seventh.

Now, the Revs have another quick turnaround, as they travel to Colorado to take on the Rapids on Saturday night.

The defending MLS Cup champion Rapids are in fifth place in the Western Conference. Their last meeting with the Revolution came back on May 7 at Gillette Stadium, where the two teams settled for a scoreless draw.
