The reigning MLS Cup champions have saluted in their past two outings and defender Chris Wingert and coach Jason Kreis are both eyeing three points against their rivals.
"We have some momentum here with a couple of wins and we want to keep it going," said Wingert.
Kreis added: "We have a nice little rivalry for whatever reason now They're always physical affairs, they're always great games. It seems to be always something crazy happening. I would prefer that it's a great game and that it's physical and nothing crazy happens."
