The New England Revolution have been at their best when they're at Gillette Stadium, and they'll look to put together a two-game winning streak on Saturday night at home against the Houston Dynamo.

The Revs are coming off a 4-1 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC last Saturday at Gillette Stadium. It marked New England's third home win of the season. Entering Saturday's match with the Dynamo, the Revolution are 3-1 in their own building.

Both New England and Houston enter the match tied for fifth place in the Eastern Conference (out of 10), with 12 points.

Jay Heaps' squad is looking for their third-straight win at home, and their fifth of the season, but they'll have to do it without midfielder Clyde Simms, who will miss Saturday's match with left ankle tendonitis, after having started in all 10 of the Revolution's games this season.

Also listed as "out" on the Revs' injury report is Sainey Nyassi (hamstring), Jeremiah White (concussion), Flo Lechner (metatarsal fracture), and Zak Boggs (ankle).
