The New England Revolution return to MLS action on Saturday night after having their third and final bye last weekend. They'll head to the West Coast to take on Chivas USA.

Chivas USA enters their match with the Revs having lost seven straight games and getting outscored 19-2 in those losses. They haven't won since March, and are currently the last-place team in the Western Conference with a 3-10-2 record.

Meanwhile, New England's last league match resulted in a 4-3 loss in Vancouver two weeks ago. The Revs enter Saturday's game with Chivas USA as the seventh-place (out of 10) team in the Eastern Conference, with a 5-5-5 record, but are just three points out of the fifth and final playoff spot in the conference.

Revolution rookie defender Andrew Farrell will miss Saturday's match because of a suspension he received after his red card in Vancouver two weeks ago.

As for the team's injury report, midfielder Clyde Simms could make his return to New England's lineup against Chivas USA. He's missed time recently with a knee sprain, but has been removed from that injury report.

Chivas USA will be without Daniel Atunez (ACL), while Gabriel Farfan (hamstring), Edgar Mejia (ankle), and Aaron Ponce (hamstring) are all listed as questionable on their injury report.
