Chivas USA head coach Preki is in no way complacent following his team's 100% start to the season after three games. Speaking after his team's 2-1 victory over defending champions Columbus Crew in Los Angeles, Preki said: "We'll take the three points. It was one of those games ... I'm always afraid of. For whatever reason, there was not a real football atmosphere in the stadium, guys are a little bit flat, not sharp, whatever.

"For whatever reason we dropped in our half and started defending, inviting Columbus in our half," Preki said. "We knew they were a tough team ... on set pieces and every time they have a set piece it's going to be tough. They found a way in the game quite frankly we were lucky to go into halftime even."

Chivas USA sit joint top of the Western Conference along with the Seattle Sounders.
