One of the main themes of Houston Dynamo trainings is the importance of putting opposing goalkeepers under pressure. Last week against the New England Revolution, the club failed to do that, putting zero shots on goal.

As they move forward to a pair of Northeast road battles vs. the Philadelphia Union on Saturday (3 p.m. CT, CSN Plu) and the New York Red Bulls on April 23, they are looking to rediscover that shooting touch.

The easiest way to do that is simple, according to forward Giles Barnes.

On a day where their attack was out of sorts, the Houston Dynamo defense needed to be on point; and for the first 67 minutes they were. However, what has been a bad theme for the club in 2014 reared its head again as one misplay put that good work to waste.
