Nicol was ejected from last Saturday's match against Toronto FC and will spend this weekend's clash away from the sidelines but he is confident the job will get done.
"We're just concentrating on the game and how they go about it and how we go about it," Nicol said.
"Don't get me wrong - it's great that we're going to have a big crowd and all the other stuff, but the most important thing for us (is) when we go on the field we do what we need to do.
"Obviously I won't be [on the field], and I'm disappointed in that, but I will be there so Paul (Mariner) and I will be communicating during the game so we'll go from there."
The Revs take on the Galaxy at Gillette Stadium and are hoping to take their unbeaten run to five games.
