The Dynamo welcome the Montreal Impact to BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday night looking for a spark that will set their attack alight.

After having one of the most porous defenses in MLS last year, the side has tightened up under new head coach Owen Coyle so far this season. Only three goals have been conceded in five games, with individual errors undermining solid overall displays.

With 34 minutes to go against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday evening, the Houston Dynamo had a golden chance to pull out a result.

Gonzalo Pineda had just been sent off to leave the Sounders with 10 men to defend a one-goal lead. When the final whistle blew, though, the scoreline was the same and the visitors were left to reflect on an attack that continued to struggle to create chances.

Through four games this season the Houston Dynamo defense has been very tight, allowing just two goals. Now the team is looking to put its attack on the same level as their stingy backline.

Houston have struggled to generate goals this spring: Through four games they’ve scored just twice, managing eight shots on target – the lowest amount in the league through the first four weeks. It’s a very small sample size, but it shows Houston’s struggle to turn possession, which they’re happy with, into production.
