Revs eye revenge against D.C. United

After back-to-back home games, the New England Revolution hit the road on Saturday night, as they travel to RFK Stadium to take on D.C. United.

United have already handed the Revolution a loss this season. In fact, the Revs' 2-1 loss on April 14 at Gillette Stadium marks the only home loss of the season for New England.

The Revs enter Saturday's rematch as the sixth-place team in the Eastern Conference with 13 points and a 4-6-1 record. They're only 1-5 on the road this season, which isn't a good thing against a D.C. United club that enters Saturday's match with a 5-1-2 record at home.

"If you can get points on the road, its great, said Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis. Were going to have to play a perfect game to get those points. I think were definitely capable of it. Weve shown the past couple weeks that were playing good soccer."

The United enter the game as the second-place team in the East with 24 points, just two points behind the conference-leading New York Red Bulls. But the Revs are hoping that they can pick up at least a point in their third straight game, after playing to a 2-2 draw with Houston last weekend, and defeating Vancouver 4-1 the game before.

HARRISON, N.J. - Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his 16th goal of the season in the 55th minute and the New York Red Bulls beat the New England Revolution 1-0 on Sunday.

Revs goalkeeper Brad Knighton saved Alex Muyl's shot and Wright-Phillips put back the deflection with a half-volley into the right corner. Wright-Phillips has 61 goals in 100 career MLS games.

The Red Bulls (11-9-7) extended their undefeated streak to nine games and moved into a third-place tie in the East with the Philadelphia Union. The Revolution (6-12-9) are winless in their last six.

Draw with Earthquakes extends Revolution's winless streak

SAN JOSE, Calif. - David Bingham had his sixth shutout of the season and the San Jose Earthquakes tied New England 0-0 on Wednesday night, extending the Revolution's winless streak to five games.

Bingham, who was tied for second in MLS soccer with 12 shutouts last season, had three saves - including a stop on Diego Fagundez's shot in the 86th minute.

The Revolution haven't scored since a 3-1 victory over Chicago on Aug. 9, a stretch of more than 270 minutes.

New England (6-11-8) had beaten San Jose three straight times.

San Jose (7-7-10) has just one loss in its last seven matches.
