Coy Craft and Stephen Keel will be out for Dallas while keeper Dan Kennedy and midfielder Mauro Diaz will be game-time decisions after missing the game last weekend. Toronto's defenseman Clement Simonin is to miss the game while Steve Caldwell is considered questionable. Defenders Damie Perquis, Mark Bloom, and Eriq Zavaleta alongside midfielder Benoit Cheyrou are all game-time decisions, the first two on the list having trained in the mid-week.
Two teams struggling for form as Dallas started the season with three wins before dropping 2 of their last 3. Toronto won on opening day but have failed to build on it dropping their next 3, including their 3-2 loss at Chicago 2 weekends ago.
Dallas's 4-0 loss to Colorado last Friday was their first home loss this season. They come into the match off back-to-back losses but having won 5 of the 7 meetings in Dallas between the two sides, scoring 15 goals in the process.
Toronto come into the game having never beaten Dallas in Dallas any only ever having beaten the side once, in 2007. The match is the 5th game in a 7 game road trip for the Canadian outfit, of which Toronto has only taken 3 out of the available 12 points on offer.
Prediction: Toronto are too hurt and Dallas too good. The unbeaten streak for Dallas at home against Toronto should continue.
Dallas 2-1 Toronto
