The New York Red Bulls' mid-summer road-trip continues today with an afternoon visit to the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park. The Red Bulls will be looking to rebound after falling to a 4-2 defeat against Seattle on Thursday, while Chicago will try to win their first game in Bridgeview, Illinois since their home opener, way back in March.
Thierry Henry returns for New York after missing Thursday's game due to a suspension. Dane Richards and Dwayne De Rosario will both continue in the Red Bulls' attack, although both are likely shift backwards to make space for Henry. Austin da Luz will probably be the player who makes way for the captain's return. The other likely change is in goal, where all Red Bulls fans will be praying for Bouna Coundoul to replace Greg Sutton after the Canadian 'keeper's disastrous performance against Seattle
