DC Notebook: Davies, DeRo rested for Portland match

Stars absent from lineup in loss to Sporting; GK Willis gets nod
Davies, DeRo rested for Sat

In Sunday's 1-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City, two names were surprisingly absent from the D.C. United starting lineup.

Charlie Davies didn’t make the 18 and Dwayne De Rosario was on the bench during Sunday night’s crucial matchup as head coach Olsen was looking to keep the pair fresh for the stretch run — although De Rosario came on at halftime and played 45 minutes.

Spurned opportunity for United in 1-0 loss to Conference rivals
Road streak snapped

The conclusion of D.C. United’s seven-game unbeaten streak couldn’t have come at a worse time.

It’s been almost four months since United lost a game on the road, a streak snapped with a flat performance in Sunday’s 1-0 loss against Sporting KC.

Grabbing points at Livestrong Sporting Park would have pushed DC up the ladder in the Eastern Conference, putting them in a tie for third and in possession of a playoff spot. But DC couldn’t deliver the needed performance to get a result.
