Sporting Kansas City
7-2-0, 21 pts, 1st in the Eastern Conference
3-2-3, 12 pts, 4th in the Eastern Conference
Two losses in a row now for Sporting KC as they take to the road to face the "rival" Chicago Fire. The 2-0 defeat at the hands of the expansion Montreal Impact was the shocker of the early season, and most importantly the team is looking to get back on the scoreboard as they haven't scored in the past 205 minutes, or more if you include extra time.
Extended Preview by The Daily Wiz
A mid-week draw with Real Salt Lake after a stoppage time win against Chivas USA were enough to move the Fire into fourth in the Eastern Conference with games in hand against the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th place clubs.
