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.
