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 latest power rankings are out and following the Dynamo's 3-1 defeat to the Philadelphia Union, the writers at MLSsoccer.com dropped Houston one spot from No. 7 to No. 8. Here is what they had to say about the current state of the Dynamo:
The Houston Dynamo announced today that fewer than 500 tickets remain for Saturday’s match vs. the New England Revolution, presented by Mambo Seafood. The first 5,000 fans through the gates will receive a Dynamo magnet, courtesy of Mambo Seafood.
Last weekend did not go exactly as the Dynamo had planned. After a good week of training and a Thursday night demolition of FAS in the CONCACAF Champions League, Houston was primed to continue that form in MLS play and take three points from the Philadelphia Union. After 90 minutes, however, Houston found itself on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline and stuck in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
