For the second straight weekend, all eyes will be on the battle for the center of the pitch as the Houston Dynamo host the Montreal Impact.

Last week, the pair of Adam Moffat and Ricardo Clark locked down central midfield while helping the Dynamo to a 2-0 victory over the New England Revolution. On Saturday, the task will be putting the clamps on Montreal’s dangerous duo of Felipe Martins and Patrice Bernier as the Dynamo look to continue their home dominance and push to the playoffs (7:30 pm CT).

For the first time since what seems like forever, the top six teams in the Eastern Conference have played the same number of games. That means we don't need to guess how many points a team could gain with their points in hand. All teams have played 31 games and we have as accurate a picture as ever of the playoff picture.

Brad Davis’ left calf does not seem to be very cooperative.  

For the second time in 2012, the Houston Dynamo midfielder is dealing with an injury in that region. Davis missed nearly four weeks in April due to an injury to a different calf muscle in his left leg.

However, speaking with the media after missing Thursday’s training, Davis was optimistic about his injury relating to its severity and was still holding out hope for Saturday’s match with the Montreal Impact (7:30 pm CT).

If the playoff-chasing Houston Dynamo are to get a result against Montreal on Saturday, they may have to do so without the 2011 MLS MVP runner-up.

Brad Davis suffered a left calf strain early in Tuesday’s training, ending his day and prompting the club to list him as out on the midweek injury report. Houston had an off-day Wednesday and will return to training Thursday morning.

While the Dynamo are holding out hope that Davis will be involved, head coach Dominic Kinnear knows that the show will go on either way.

I don't normally write posts encouraging fans to watch non-Dynamo games, but Saturday's match between the Chicago Fire and the New York Red Bulls carries a lot of significance, on and off the field.
