After four games of enjoying consistency and cohesion in their starting lineup that has mostly stayed the same, international duty and injury will give Houston their first true test of the young season.

After just a few weeks Andrew Driver is proving to be a quick study – the former Hearts winger has adapted quickly since his move from Scotland to Houston and is adjusting to the Dynamo culture seamlessly.

With “rivalry week” in the books and after the 3-2 loss to FC Dallas, the Houston Dynamo are still among the top ten teams in the league according to most power rankings.

The writers from MLSsoccer dropped Houston down to No. 5, after having them No. 2  last week. This is what they had to say about the Dynamo.

Ask Andrew Driver for his first impressions of Houston and he talks about the hot climate. It's a natural topic for someone who has just moved from Scotland to Texas.

Extreme heat is a novelty for the Dynamo's new midfielder but he knows radical cold better than almost anyone. He has spent time at minus 150 degrees Fahrenheit - without even wearing a coat.

You won't find it in Merriam-Webster, but it's a word that perfectly sums up the Dynamo's target this week: bouncebackability.

Popularized by the former manager of England's Crystal Palace club in 2004 and quickly adopted into the UK's soccer lexicon, the definition is simple: the capacity to rebound quickly from the disappointment of defeat.

It's a vital quality for any ambitious team and one the Dynamo are eager to demonstrate this Saturday against Vancouver Whitecaps at BBVA Compass Stadium.
