D.C. United can temporarily move into first place in the Eastern Conference of MLS with a victory over the visiting New England Revolution Saturday night at RFK Stadium.

Ben Olsen's team will look to record a third win in three consecutive home games against the Revs, who have defied low preseason expectations to hang in the middle of the Eastern Conference pack. New England enter Saturday night's match off a 2-2 draw with the Houston Dynamo last Saturday, which was immediately proceeded by a 4-1 home win over the Vancouver Whitecaps.

For their part, United are coming off a 3-1 win over Toronto FC last weekend and a 2-0 win over Colorado on May 16. Dwayne De Rosario scored three goals in those two games, a performance that saw him named MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters.

Tonight's game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and will not be locally televised.
