Gameday: #NEvTOR


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Welcome to Gillette Stadium, where the Revolution (7-9-7, 28 points) will face Toronto FC (8-7-4, 28 points) for the second time this season. Kickoff is set for 7:30pm.

Earlier this year, the sides settle for a 1-1 draw on May 16 at Gillette Stadium.

What’s at stake? For the Revolution, it’s about extending the moment gained from their last two games, a win over New York City and a draw at Chicago. The recent results allowed the Revolution to distance themselves from their summertime slump. For the Reds, Saturday’s match will be about getting a result at any cost, especially with Michael Bradley definitely out and Sebastian Giovinco likely out.

Biggest question: Will Jermaine Jones make an appearance? The prized midfielder was a full participant in training this week, and if he’s gets clearance from the coaching staff and medical staff, we may very well see him on the pitch.

Weather: We have sunny skies here in Foxborough, with temperatures in the low-80s and no real wind to speak of.

Referees: Chris Penso will be the referee on Saturday. The last Revolution game in which he served as the man in middle was last year’s 2-1 win for the locals over the Fire on Sept. 7. Joining Penso for Saturday’s proceedings will be Mike Kampmeinert (AR1) and Eric Weisbrod (AR2). The fourth official will be Alan Kelly.
