  • Deric can keep his fifth clean sheet of the season and the 20th of his career with a shutout tonight.
  • DF A.J. DeLaGarza will start his 28th game of the season and the 224th of his MLS career tonight.
  • DF Philippe Senderos returns to the Starting XI for the first time since Sep. 9 vs. Colorado Rapids. He will be making his second start of the season and second in MLS.
