Jed Zayner makes his first start for D.C. United since the March 19 season opener against the Columbus Crew as he replaces Chris Korb in the visitors' backline. That's the only change Ben Olsen has made to his starting line-up. Otherwise, he keeps the same team from the 4-0 whitewash against New York last week with Charlie Davies and Josh Wolff starting up front and Dejan Jakovic and Perry Kitchen forming the center-back tandem.
