Due to the suspensions of Sheanon Williams and Fabinho, the Union are forced to get much more creative with their starting XI today. The Union need four points out of their last three games to ensure a decent chance of making the playoffs, and five points out of their last three games to virtually clinch a playoff spot, though New England Revolution's 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact tonight did nothing to help the cause of the Union qualifying. Tonight, they face the worst team in the league in D.C. United. Given the Union's last two opponents are Montreal Impact and Sporting Kansas City, there is no better spot to give three of the four or five needed points tonight.
