MLS WEEK 14: TFC, Houston on ESPN2

Week 14 of Major League Soccer action kicks off Thursday. Here's a brief preview:

Toronto FC (5-4-3, 18 points) vs. Houston Dynamo (5-7-2, 17 points) at BMO Field (Toronto), 4 p.m., ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes

TFC heads into this Canada Day contest unbeaten at home (5-0-2) and with seven shutouts in its last eight games, all competitions. Midfielder Julian de Guzman and former UCLA forward Chad Barrett are expected to return to the Reds' starting lineup. Houston is winless in its last four MLS games and will need to corral former Dynamo star Dwayne De Rosario to end the streak. Joseph Ngwenya scored in his first start in last week's draw with Colorado.
