MLS game #25: DCU vs. Kansas City

United kicks off its five game homestand tonight by taking on the Kansas City Wizards (7:30 p.m. ET, Comcast SportsNet HD). The playoff picture right now is a little messy, but a few wins over the five games at RFK Stadium will go a long way towards securing a spot in the post-season. 

As you likely know, the team will be without Marc Burch (ankle surgery on Sunday) and Dejan Jakovic (bi-lateral hernia repair) for the next 2-3 weeks. 

KC is well out of playoff conention right now, but is coming off a huge 4-2 road win in New England on Saturday. United will need to contain the likes of Josh Wolff, Davy Arnaud and Claudio Lopez tonight as it looks to begin a run of wins at RFK.

How are you feeling about the team heading into tonight's game? What backline would you like to see knowing that Burch and Jakovic are unavailable? Anyone for a prediction?
