About the Union: Now 16 points out of a playoff spot with 10 games left, the Union have bleak postseason prospects. Defender and captain Carlos Valdes left Wednesday's game in the 54th minute with a hamstring injury. The Union continually dominated Columbus, especially after getting a man advantage in the 69th minute following a red card, but couldn't score in that time. The loss gave the Union a 0-3-2 mark in August. The day after the loss, Hackworth was named the Union's permanent team manager, having the "interim" tag lifted. The Union haven't won since that July 29 victory over the Revolution. They haven't had a player score in consecutive games all season. Gabriel Gomez is tied with since-traded Lionard Pajoy with a team-leading five goals.
About the Revolution: The Revs are 0-7-2 in their last nine games. During this span, the Revs have been outscored, 16-9. New England's last win was a 2-0 victory over a talented New York Red Bulls team, July 8 at home. Saer Sene, who scored two goals on Wednesday, has a team-high 11 goals. Sene entered the weekend tied for fourth in MLS in goals and was fourth in shots on goal (35). In Wednesday's 3-3 draw with Chivas USA, the Revs squandered a 3-0 lead. Chris Tierney has two goals and a team-high four assists.
