After an unbeaten April, the Houston Dynamo are now winless through two games in May, with a goal per game to show for it. While the recent lack of offense is concerning, the way the team is giving up goals is causing just as much worry for a club that has seen its season take a quick and unwelcome change in tone.

Days after allowing two late goals on suspect plays to drop a home result to Colorado last week, the Dynamo gave up two goals that the team felt were self-inflicted to drop a second straight 2-1 result on the road, at Toronto FC this past Saturday.

HOUSTON – Outside of a tough loss Wednesday, the Houston Dynamo’s start in 2011 has mostly been positive. They have gotten points on the road, gotten scoring from their forwards, and had an undefeated April.

One of the few negatives, however has been their battle with injuries, particularly involving Brian Ching.

Looking to put the skids on a long winless run in MLS play, Toronto FC remain at home to entertain the Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening. TFC haven’t won in six league games after a 3-0 loss in Seattle last weekend, though they defeated Edmonton in the Canadian Championship at midweek. The Dynamo saw their long undefeated run come to an end at midweek, falling 2-1 at home to Colorado.

HOUSTON – After their second tough home loss of the season, the Houston Dynamo are looking at the schedule now as a blessing.

Houston have little time to dwell on the mistakes that cost them in a 2-1 loss to Colorado on Wednesday. They’re back at it on the road against Toronto FC on Saturday (6 pm ET, MatchDay Live), and the match is a welcome one for a Dynamo locker room that experienced its first loss since the season opener.

HOUSTON – After six games of unlocking opposing defenses, the Houston Dynamo came up empty for the majority of Wednesday’s match against the Colorado Rapids.

In addition to the low number of scoring chances, the Dynamo’s 2-1 loss at Robertson Stadium saw a high number of fouls — 26 total — and two yellow cards. With the Rapids looking to disrupt Houston's potent attack, the men in orange — who entered the week as one of the league leaders in shots — generated just nine shots, their lowest home output of the season.
