It has gone from bad to worse for the Houston Dynamo defense.

With their starting center backs in the fold and a two-goal lead thanks to a first half brace from Brad Davis, the club looked to be in good shape to get a positive out of their game against Toronto FC on Saturday.

It turned out to be too tall a task, as a combination of poor mistakes and missteps in defense turned the good start into a gut punch 4-2 loss to TFC that once again showed the team’s Achilles heel.

Jermain Defoe is not the only former English Premier League striker who could pose a serious threat to the Dynamo when they face Toronto FC on Saturday night (6 p.m. CT; CSN Plus).

The Canadians acquired Luke Moore from Chivas USA in a trade on May 8 and he has three goals in seven appearances for Ryan Nelsen’s side, including one last Saturday in a 2-1 defeat to D.C. United.
