FOXBORO The New England Revolution have now gone seven games without a win,
which includes a blown 4-1 halftime lead on Wednesday night in Philadelphia that led to a 4-4 draw.
It marked the Revs third-straight draw, and theyll try to snap out of the current funk
on Saturday night when they host FC Dallas at Gillette Stadium. In each of those three straight games, New England allowed the game-tying goal in the 87th minute or later.
This groups shown the whole season the commitment and the want to win, said
Revolution coach Steve Nicol. We just havent finished it off when we shouldve done
on too many occasions so far this season, particularly the last three games.
FC Dallas enters the game in third place in the Western Conference with 46 points, while the Revolution find themselves tied for last place in the Eastern Conference with just 24 points.
--The Revolution will be without veteran Pat Phelan on Saturday night, thanks to a
concussion he suffered on Wednesday in Philadelphia. Phelan had a headache on
Thursday, and was going through tests on Friday, forcing him to miss practice.
New England will also be without Stephen McCarthy (shoulder) and Sainey Nyasi
(MCL) on Saturday.
