In a battle of teams just outside the playoff picture, the Houston Dynamo made two first-half goals stand in a 2-1 home win over the Portland Timbers on Sunday night at Robertson Stadium to move into playoff position.

Trades are a big part of the professional sports landscape. Players move between teams and inevitably those players traded want to show their former clubs what they are made of whenever they get a chance.

Lovel Palmer and Mike Chabala were traded away from the Houston Dynamo on July 21 to Sunday’s visitors, the Portland Timbers. Under the leadership of former Dynamo assistant coach John Spencer, Houston are expecting a motivated performance from the trio this weekend (8 p.m. CT, Galavisión, Get your tickets).

The emotions of Portland Timbers players Mike Chabala and Lovel Palmer, along with head coach John Spencer, will undoubtedly be high when they travel to Houston this weekend to face their former team.

The Timbers will play at Robertson Stadium for the first time on Sunday (8 p.m. CT, Get your tickets), reuniting the two players who were acquired in a trade less than a month ago and Spencer, who spent four years there as an assistant coach, with their former mates.

The last
two weeks have been very good to the Houston Dynamo, as they took four points
out of six in matches against the Seattle Sounders and the Philadelphia Union.
A large part of Houston’s
recent success has been the play of Geoff Cameron, who is starting to put his
fingerprints on the Dynamo attack.

Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear will see a very familiar face when he looks down the sideline on Sunday night (8 p.m. CT; get tickets).

His counterpart this weekend will be Portland Timbers head coach John
Spencer, who served as an assistant in Houston under Kinnear from
2006-10. Unsurprisingly, the pair developed a bond that transcends the
soccer field.

After striking a loan deal last week for forward Carlo Costly, the
Houston Dynamo reinforced their central midfield with the signing of
Brazilian Luiz Camargo on Tuesday. While terms of the deal were not disclosed, MLSsoccer.com confirmed that, like Costly, Camargo is coming to Houston on loan.
