United return home after two games on the road. They'll be looking for their first win of the season in prime time tonight.

D.C. United (0-2-1, 1 point) return home after their best performance of the season, a draw on the road against Western Conference-leading Vancouver (2-0-1, 7 points). United will be looking for their first win of the season against FC Dallas (1-1-1, 4 points) Friday night at home in front of the RFK faithful.

United faced a tough stretch to begin the season, facing the top team in each conference, including the defending champion Los Angeles Galaxy. Dallas isn't nearly as tough, but are still quite dangerous. Forward Blas Perez is dangerous up top as both a scorer and distributor. Plus, there's always Midfielder Brek Shea to contend with. FC Dallas also has one of the most accomplished goalkeepers in MLS history in Kevin Hartman.

United will be down starting goalkeeper Bill Hamid, who is out 1-3 weeks with a sprained ankle. Joe Willis will get the start again for United, while Perry Kitchen looks to make his return to the United lineup after participating with the U-23 Olympic Qualifying team.

The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network. (Channel finder located here.)
