De Rosario the focus for struggling Dynamo

Kinnear's crew head to BMO in need of points

HOUSTON – Dwayne De Rosario is in the midst of
another solid MLS season with Toronto FC, and don’t think his former Houston
Dynamo
teammates have missed the news.

“Obviously you have to focus on Dwayne as he is having another great season
for them,” Dynamo goalkeeper Pat Onstad said this week, ahead of Houston’s
matchup at BMO Field on Thursday night. “[He is] a very dynamic player off the
front man and finds those pockets of space and causes problems. It is one guy we
will have to focus on. It will be a difficult game for us.”

Houston enter Thursday night’s match coming off a disappointing home draw
against the Colorado Rapids. Defensive miscues once
again doomed the Dynamo after posting three consecutive losses prior to the MLS
break.

“We need to start getting results and points,” noted Onstad. “As happy as we
were for a come from behind point against Colorado, in the end we still would
have loved to get three and we haven’t been able to do that in a while. It’s a
make or break run over the next few weeks to try to get some points and get
going.”

Toronto FC is 4-0-2 at home this season.

"They started out the year, digging their heels in and making sure the
physical statement was made early,” Dynamo head coach Dominc Kinnear said. “We have to be
ready physically when the game starts to get a good result."
