MLS Regular Season
Houston Dynamo vs. Toronto FC
Saturday, July 19, 8:00 p.m. CT
BBVA Compass Stadium, Houston, Texas
A Brad vs. Bradley midfield battle did not materialize last Saturday but Brad Davis and Michael Bradley are expected to feature at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday when the Dynamo host Toronto FC (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS).
The Houston Dynamo could get a boost to their struggling defense with the possible return of Corey Ashe.
The starting left back has missed the past two games, including last weekend’s 4-2 defeat to Toronto FC, with injuries to his left knee. Head coach Dominic Kinnear said he’s feeling good about Ashe’s ability to play Saturday, also against Toronto (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS).
Inspirational performances and consistent production got Brad Davis to Brazil. Now the Dynamo captain is aiming for more of the same for the rest of the season, fortified by a boost in self-belief that comes from representing his country on soccer’s greatest stage.
Dominic Kinnear, Kofi Sarkodie and Tally Hall preview Saturday's match with Toronto FC at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Houston Dynamo are eager for second chance against Toronto FC: "There’s obviously a bad taste in our mouths"
After scoring twice and creating several more good opportunities, Houston will look to maintain their attacking momentum but cut out the defensive errors that saw an early 2-0 lead evaporate.
The summer transfer window has often been used by the Houston Dynamo to add a player or two to help a run to the playoffs. With the team giving up the most goals (38) in MLS and just now rounding into form in the attack, it’s a different situation.
As the team searches for answer, the window is an enticing time to see if there is a fix. That is not the outlook the club is taking, however.
