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.

It’s a simple formula: grind out results on the road and protect the home field.

Heading into Wednesday's matchup with the defending MLS Cup champion Colorado Rapids (7:30 p.m., Buy Tickets),
that strategy has the Dynamo at the top of the Eastern Conference.
Houston has won its last three home games by a combined score of 8-2,
making any visit to Robertson Stadium a tough task.

The Houston Dynamo are home for a second consecutive game, riding a hot hand as the defending MLS Cup champion Colorado Rapids look to reverse a recent slide when the teams meet Wednesday at Robertson Stadium. The Dynamo have not lost in six games, coming off a dominating 4-1 home win against D.C. United last Friday. The Rapids ended their three-game losing streak last weekend, coming away with a 1-1 draw with Chicago at home.

After a hiccup in Week 1, the Houston Dynamo have put together a well-crafted, six-game unbeaten streak fueled by a locker room that is clicking on all levels.

While the Dynamo are going strong on the field – the attack is steadily improving and the defense is one of the league’s stingiest – the off-the-field chemistry is just as good. The team is getting along, working together, and creating some friendly competition on a team filled with depth.
