The New England Revolution haven't lost a game in June, and they look to finish the month unbeaten on Saturday night as they host Seattle Sounders FC at Gillette Stadium.

It will mark the first of a three-game home stand for the Revolution, as they enter the game coming off a dramatic come-from-behind 2-2 draw in Toronto last weekend.

The Revs are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference (out of 10) with 18 points on a 5-7-3 record. They haven't lost since May 26, and are 4-1-2 at home this season.

Meanwhile the Sounders enter Saturday night's match in fourth place in the Western Conference (out of nine) on a 7-5-4 record. Seattle began the season 7-1-1, but is winless in its last seven matches, going 0-4-3.

New England will try to keep Seattle's winless skid alive at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, and they'll do so with their captain returning.

Shalrie Joseph missed last weekend's match with a right adductor injury, but he'll be available on Saturday against Seattle. Also available for the Revs will be Sainey Nyassi, who will be available for the first time this season, after being activated from the disabled list this week.

Jose Moreno (ankle) remains out, and Kevin Alston (hamstring) will join him on the sideline.

The Sounders will be without Freddy Montero (suspension), starting goalkeeper Michael Gspurning (hip), and David Estrada (foot).
