It's gametime for a crunch match between the Red Bulls and KC to determine who will take the Eastern Conference lead into the final games of the regular season.

With Thierry Henry missing out due to the birth of his son, Hans Backe has gone for (what looks like) a 4-4-2, with Le Toux and Cooper starting up top. Lindpere and Miller have been dropped to the bench, possibly with an eye on Wednesday's game against DC United.


Red Bulls (4-4-2): Bill Gaudette; Connor Lade, Heath Pearce, Markus Holgersson, Wilman Conde; Tim Cahill, Dax McCarty, Teemu Tainio, Jan Gunnar Solli; Sebastien Le Toux, Kenny Cooper

Bench: Luis Robles, Brandon Barklage, Roy Miller, Joel Lindpere, Stephen Keel, Jonathan Borrajo, Jose Angulo

KC: Jimmy Nielsen, Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic, Paulo Nagamura, Julio Cesar, Roger Espinoza, Graham Zusi, Teal Bunbury, Kei Kamara

Bench: Eric Kronberg, Michael Harrington, Lawrence Olum, Oriol Rosell, Soony Saad, Michael Thomas, C J Sapong

Let's win.
