As expected, Union forward Sebastien Le Toux has been ruled out of Saturday's road game against the Los Angeles Galaxy with a left knee injury. He was hurt Tuesday during a 2-1 loss to the host New York Red Bulls in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup play-in game. A spokeswoman for the Union described the injury as mild and said it was in the team's best interest to give Le Toux the week off.

The Union on Wednesday will have their one chance to face Major League Soccer royalty when the Los Angeles Galaxy visit Talen Energy Stadium for the first time since 2013.

Over the years the Galaxy have had some of the biggest names in MLS, such as Landon Donovan and David Beckham, and there is still plenty of star power.

The Union's depth and resolve will be tested when they visit the Montreal Impact on Saturday with first place in the Eastern Conference on the line. Montreal (4-3-3, 15 points) holds a one-point lead on both the Union (4-3-2) and Toronto (4-3-2). But both second-place teams own a game in hand on the Impact. The Impact should be well rested after a wild 4-4 tie last Saturday at Columbus in which they overcame a three-goal deficit against the Crew. The Union, meanwhile, are coming off an exhausting 2-2 draw Wednesday against the Los Angeles Galaxy at Talen Energy Stadium.

The Union have ramped up their expectations this season, and the game Wednesday night offered another example of that. Even though they controlled play for much of the night against one of the top teams in Major League Soccer, they were disappointed by 2-2 draw against the visiting Los Angeles Galaxy. In their previous game, a 1-1 draw at home with the San Jose Earthquakes, the game had the feeling of a loss because the Union surrendered the equalizer in the 83rd minute while up a man. On the surface, this one seemed more like a win since the Union consistently put the heat on the Galaxy.

Union defender Maurice Edu is looking forward to a rare trip home while playing in a difficult road environment. Edu, who has been the Union's best player this season, will lead his team in Saturday's 10:30 p.m. Major League Soccer match against the defending MLS Cup champion Los Angeles Galaxy (5-5-7) at the StubHub Center. The Union (4-9-3) will be shorthanded, missing key offensive players Sebastien Le Toux (Grade 2 MCL sprain) and forward Fernando Aristeguieta (ankle), so that will put even more pressure on Edu and the defense.

Now comes the difficult part. There was no problem for the Union getting up for a second game in five days, mainly because of the opponent. Now they must prepare for a third game in eight days, while bouncing back from a most difficult final 45 minutes. How the Union fare in Saturday's MLS matchup at PPL Park against the Chicago Fire at 7:30 p.m. will go a long way toward determining whether they have the ability to hang in there for the marathon of a playoff run. The Union began their journey with Saturday's 1-0 win over the host Fire.
