Revs Look For First Win in Canada

Who: New England Revolution at Toronto F.C.
What: MLS Regular Season
Where: BMO Field, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
When: Saturday, 7:30 p.m. (Fox Soccer Channel)

The New England Revolution ended their three game losing skid with a 2-1 victory against D.C. United on Wednesday, vaulting them back to a spot their familiar with -- first place.

Now the team continues its toughest stretch of the season with a trip to Canada to play in the sold-out hostile crowd at BMO Field. The Revs have beaten Toronto in all three home matches since the first Canadian team in MLS entered the league last year, but could only draw on the road the one time the two teams met in Canada.

It won't be easy for the Revs to get their first victory in Canada as several key players are likely to be unavailable. Speedy midfielder Sainey Nyassi is certain to miss out with a one game suspension for yellow card accumulation. Also out are forwards Kheli Dube and Adam Cristman due to injury.
