MLS Regular Season
If you have looked outside this morning, you have probably seen a bit of rain coming down. Tonight's match between the Dynamo and the Revolution at BBVA Compass Stadium is scheduled to go on as planned.
Barring a major storm that threatens the safety of the players and fans, tonight's match WILL NOT be canceled.
If there is one team that knows how to win in Houston, it is the New England Revolution.
The Revs have historically been a menace to the Dynamo, holding a 4-1-1 all-time record in the Bayou City. That's a good sign for a team which is out of the playoffs and looking to play spoiler over a franchise nemesis – Houston, after all, handed New England back-to-back MLS Cup losses in 2006 and 2007.
With that, the Dynamo are expecting a stiff test from a New England team with nothing to lose (7:30 pm CT, KPRC Local 2).

HOUSTON – At this time last year, the play of Adam Moffat was being hailed as one of the reasons for the Houston Dynamo’s late season run. Things haven’t gone quite the same way in 2012.
Coming to Houston from the Portland Timbers in a July 2011 trade, Moffat helped rekindle the Dynamo's bite in the middle of the pitch while endearing himself to fans with his work ethic and now trademark Moffat Rocket, the moniker bestowed on his frequent long-range bombs.
With the playoffs on the line in the next four matches, the Houston Dynamo are looking to take full advantage of the edge provided by their 2012 schedule.
Undefeated at home in their last 22 regular season matches (including 14 in 2012), the Dynamo are heading into a three-game homestand at BBVA Compass Stadium against the New England Revolution, Montreal Impact and Philadelphia Union. They are three East clubs currently on the outside looking into the playoff picture.
The Houston Dynamo will resume training this week in preparation for Saturday's crucial showdown with the New England Revolution. See what else is happening around the Dynamo this week.
