Friday night sees Dallas take on defending champions the Rapids at Pizza Hut Park and 2010 MLS MVP David Ferreira a first lot of three points for his side who currently sit on the bottom of the Western conference table.
"The team is good," he said. "We are calm and trying to get a good result.
"I think that we need to be calm and create space," he admitted. "We know that this moment isn't very good and the pressure increases, but we have to stay calm because we have been through this before."
On the other hand, the Rapids have won three from three and are sitting pretty which gives Dallas even more motivation to get a win in the eyes of head coach Schellas Hyndman.
"I can't speak for the players but for me, it's an opportunity to get a win and I'm focusing on getting our first win and not really thinking about last year's championship game because I think this is more important for us right now," he said.
