Revs face tough challenge in Real Salt Lake

The New England Revolution play their third game in eight days on Saturday, as they travel to Real Salt Lake, just three days after snapping a three-game losing skid with their 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night at Gillette Stadium.

Real Salt Lake enters the game as the second-best team in the Western Conference, with 19 points and a 6-3-1 record.

The Revs enter Saturday's match as the fourth-place team in the Eastern Conference, thanks to the three points they earned in the middle of the week.

New England will be without Ryan Guy (calf), Flo Lechner (metatarsal fracture), Jose Moreno (calf), Sainey Nyassi (hamstring), and jeremiah White (concussion), who have all been ruled out for Saturday's match, according to the team's injury report.

Both Kevin Alston and Saer Sene are probable with an illness.

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.

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.
