This offseason, midfielder Lovel Palmer left Harbour View – the team he loved and played for in Jamaica since he was a teenager – to travel to the U.S. and earn a spot with the Houston Dynamo.

Prior to traveling to Kansas City and DC with the Dynamo, the Jamaican international sat down with MLSsoccer.com to talk about his first year in MLS and his national-team experience.

Even though they're squaring off against the only team lower than them on the table, the Houston Dynamo expect a dogfight against D.C. United on Saturday night, with both teams likely to go all out to avoid ending the season at the bottom of the table.

“No one wants to be at the bottom of the table, and it’s a chance for us to separate ourselves from them,” said defender Bobby Boswell, who played for D.C. prior to joining the Dynamo but is suspended for Saturday's match due to yellow card accumulation.

Their 2010 record does not match their reputation, but D.C. United interim coach Ben Olsen still expects a vintage Houston Dynamo performance when the Western Conference underachievers visit RFK Stadium on Saturday night.
