scott-caldwellThe New England Revolution beat Toronto FC 3-1 at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night in front of 21,362 happy fans.

Charlie Davies with two goals and Lee Nguyen from the penalty spot scored the New England goals, who now have a three match unbeaten run going.

I had been looking forward to see Toronto’s dynamic trio of Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco. But was disappointed as Bradley missed the game through injury, Altidore was sent off after 39 minutes for kicking out at Jose Goncalves and Giovinco was invisible, starved of service in the first half with only 11 touches and was replaced at half time.

The-FortThe New England beat NYC FC 2-1 in front of a season high crowd of 28,811 fans at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.

With the win the Revolution ended their five game winless streak and moved six points ahead of New York in the playoff battle.

The Revolution goal came in 12th minute when Lee Nguyen finished off a great NE passing move that ripped open the New York defense.

Revs boss Jay Heaps had to juggle his defense due to injuries and suspensions with Brad Knighton replacing the injured Bobby Shuttleworth in goal and Jeremy Hall sliding into central defense to replace the suspended Jose Concalves.

The-FortThe New England and the Columbus Crew drew 0-0 in front of 13,092 fans on a sunny but windy afternoon at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.

With gusts of over 30 miles an hour it was difficult for both sides to string more than a couple of passes together and that contributed to a very scrappy game that was devoid of any real goal scoring chances.

The big news pregame was the return of US international Jermain Jones to the New England starting XI for the first time this season. Jones had missed the Revs opening five games after injuring himself at a USA camp in January.

roweThe New England beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 in front of 10,688 fans on a cold and damp afternoon at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.

Revs headed into the San Jose game with only one point on the season, and that came in last weekend’s 0-0 draw with the Montreal Impact.

Heading into the game my three keys from a New England Revolution perspective were:

  1. How solid will the defense be with Jose Goncalves back in the line-up?
  2. Revs were very narrow against Montreal. Can they play with more width against San Jose?

The-FortThe New England and the Montreal Impact drew 0-0 on a damp afternoon at Gillette Stadium today. The draw was the first points for both sides this season.

Revs headed into the Montreal game on the back of two disappointing defeats at Seattle and New York. Both defeats exposed a soft underbelly to the New England defence.

Without the departed AJ Soares and the injured Jermain Jones and Lee Nguyen, their was a weakness down the spine of the New England defence that was not there during the teams run to the MLS Cup.
