San Jose Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop is looking to his side's mid-week clash against the Columbus Crew as an opportunity to turn his team's season around.

Speaking to reporters at training this week Yallop said, "The New York loss was set plays and Houston was set plays. You have your [bad] spells and sometimes you don't concede any. We've just got to keep working hard, getting focused, and getting ready."
