It's pretty close to it with just three games left in the season and several teams vying for the final four playoff spots. Following a courageous 2-2 draw versus Saprissa in Costa Rica on Thursday, United will attempt to replicate the gritty, spirited performance against the Western Conference leading Houston Dynamo.

The team trained yesterday afternoon at Robertson Stadium. The field is relatively hard and, unfortunately, covered with tons of football lines and graphics - not great for those watching on TV. Speaking of which, tonight's game - set for 7 p.m. ET - will be broadcast live on Comcast SportsNet and on the radio in English (1050 AM) and in Spanish (1540 AM).
