The New England Revolution (5-3-4, 19 points) will be back to work on Saturday, coming off a midweek 4-2 loss to Sporting Kansas City, when they welcome top-of-the-table D.C. United (6-2-3, 21 points) into Gillette Stadium.

The longtime conference foes will take the pitch with the same objective: walk away with first place. A mere two points separates the Revolution from first place, and a win against DC would allow them to leapfrog their rivals.

Here’s a look at some relevant numbers surrounding the Revolution going into Saturday’s match:

1 – The Revolution lost their first regular season game with Jermaine Jones in the starting lineup since acquiring him on Aug. 24, 2014 with Wednesday’s 4-2 loss to Sporting Kansas City.

45 – Weeks since the last time the Revolution lost back-to-back games (Jul. 19 at Dallas & Jul. 26 vs. Columbus).

2 – Scott Caldwell netted his second goal of the season, and his career in the 6194th minute. Prior to this year, Caldwell had never scored in MLS play.

19 – The Revs collected 19 points during their nine-game unbeaten run, going 5-0-4.

150 – Andy Dorman appeared in his 150th game as a member of the Revolution on Wednesday night’s loss. The Revolution midfielder will be suspended for Saturday’s match due to caution accumulation.

5 – Juan Agudelo’s 11th-minute goal give the Revolution a 1-0 lead for the fifth consecutive game. During that span, the Revolution have gone 2-1-2.

0 – After Andrew Farrell and Bobby Shuttleworth were rested for Wednesday’s mid-week match, the Revolution now have zero players on the roster who’ve played in every minute of the 2015 season.

    Dorman’s been big for these first few games. With Diago, JoGo, and JJ all missing time he’s been quietly consistent for us, filling an important gap. He doesn’t put up flashy numbers but he really has helped us compete and weather things nicely. Hopefully we wont have to rely on him too much going forward but its nice having an Andy around just in case. You need savvy vets like him on your roster to be a good team IMO.

      Completely agree. Dorman has quietly been a consistent player for Heaps. He is never going to be a huge threat offensively again, but Caldwell has been able to go forward when playing with Dorman.

      Just shows some of the depth that they Revs have outside of their back 4.
