Chicago Fire's Designated Player Nery Castillo is set for his first appearance since September 18 when his side faces the Kansas City Wizards on Tuesday.

The Mexican forward has struggled to make an impact since joining the Fire in July but will get his chance off the bench at Toyota Park.

Chicago's other DP, Freddie Ljungberg, will start the match alongside Brian McBride or Collins John whilst promising goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra will make his second consecutive start in the absence of regular gloveman Sean Johnson.
