The New York Red Bulls are back in action this evening as they take on the Houston Dynamo down at Robertson Stadium. The Red Bulls can ensure that they remain in first place in the Eastern Conference with a victory, while Houston knows that a win for them combined with a Philadelphia draw or loss against Chicago would vault the Dynamo into top spot.

We already knew that Thierry Henry's knee injury will keep him out of the lineup, but Hans Backe pulled a fast one on the Red Bulls faithful, putting Greg Sutton back in goal and benching Bouna Coundoul.

Red Bulls: Greg Sutton; Jan Gunnar Solli, Rafael Márquez, Tim Ream, Roy Miller; Dane Richards, Teemu Tainio, Dwayne De Rosario, Joel Lindpere; Luke Rodgers, Juan Agudelo

Subs: Bouna Coundoul, Stephen Keel, Carlos Mendes, Matt Kassel, John Rooney, Mehdi Ballouchy, Corey Hertzog

Houston: Tally Hall, Hunter Freeman, Bobby Boswell, André Hainault, Corey Ashe, Colin Clark, Geoff Cameron, Lovel Palmer, Brad Davis, Cam Weaver, Will Bruin

Subs: Tyler Deric, Mike Chabala, Koke (this is actually his name), Jason Garey, Kofi Sarkodie, Jermaine Taylor, Je-Vaughn Watson

You can find Houston perspective at Dynamo Theory.

Kickoff is at 8:30 on MSG. Let's rock and roll.
