Toronto FC will look to snap a six-game MLS winless streak (four draws, two losses) on Saturday evening at BMO Field - Toronto v. Houston - GOL TV Canada^ at 7 p.m. ET.
The Reds beat FC Edmonton 1-0 (4-0 agg.) at midweek to advance to the Nutrilite Canadian Championship Final against Vancouver (May 18 & 25). As a result, Toronto will experience one of the busiest months for competitive matches in club history with eight games in 24 days that includes travel to Dallas, Vancouver and Colorado. Toronto midfielder Julian de Guzman and forward Alan Gordon suffered knocks against Edmonton and are questionable (or worse) to take part Saturday. Meanwhile, Tony Tchani returns from suspension.

The Dynamo are third in the Eastern Conference, four places and five points ahead of Toronto with both teams playing eight games in the 2011 MLS season. The Reds will have to be alert at midfield and the back. Brad Davis is leading the league in assists while towering forwards Cam Weaver and Will Bruin have combined for seven goals this season.
