Rapid Reaction: Revolution 1, Chivas USA 0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Leave it to Lee Nguyen to get the job done for the Revolution.

The club's leading scorer tallied his ninth goal of the season on Saturday to give his squad a 1-0 win over Chivas USA on Saturday at Gillette Stadium.

On the other end of the pitch, Bobby Shuttleworth stopped four shots to collect his sixth clean sheet of the season.

With the win, the Revolution snapped a two-game winless streak (0-1-1), while Chivas USA was left out of the win column for the sixth straight occasion (0-4-2).

What it means: It appeared early on that the usual issues with finishing and final balls would doom the Revolution to another disappointing draw. While they tipped the possession scale at or near 70 percent for much of the night with Chivas digging in and playing for the draw, the best the Revolution could muster was a series of half-chances by the break. But just before the hour mark, Nguyen rescued his teammates when he blasted a shot beyond the reach of Dan Kennedy. While Nguyen got the job done up the pitch, Shuttleworth played particularly well between the sticks, where he made four saves -- two of the acrobatic variety -- to seal the victory for the Revolution.

Stat of the match: Chivas USA came to Foxborough looking to dig in and disrupt the Revolution, and for the most part, succeeded in doing so by outfouling their hosts 20-5.

Scoreboard watch: With the Red Bulls beating the Impact 4-2 on Saturday, the Revolution remain in sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

Two changes to Revs lineup: Revolution coach Jay Heaps made a pair of changes to his lineup from the one the used against Portland last week. Daigo Kobayashi received his first start since a July 19 match at FC Dallas, while Teal Bunbury was relegated to the bench for the first time since a July 4 contest at Real Salt Lake. In the back, Darrius Barnes manned the left fullback's spot in place of an injured Kevin Alston.

Familiar face back in Foxborough: Former Revolution midfielder/defender Tony Lochhead made his first visit to Gillette Stadium on Saturday in more than seven years. Lochhead was drafted by the Revolution in 2005, and collected two assists in 16 games for the local XI in 2006. He was released at the start of the 2007 season, and went on to play in the Australian A-League from 2007-13, and played in the 2010 World Cup for his native New Zealand.

Taylor makes his debut: Newly acquired striker Tony Taylor made his Revolution debut in the 81st minute when he came on for Charlie Davies. The former U.S. U-20 star completed all three of the passes he made off the bench in his MLS debut.

Heading north of the border: The Revolution will journey north to BMO Field on Saturday, Aug. 30 to face Toronto FC for the second time this season. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. ET. In their initial encounter, the Revolution staked a 2-1 comeback win over the Reds at BMO Field on May 3.
