Chicagoans v. Bostonians

Tasos Katopodis

It's a little redundant to say that every game is a must win, but for the Chicago Fire, it is nothing but the truth. Every point from now until October is going to be huge.

The Fire will have to do without Patrick Nyarko again this week, as he is still suffering from a concussion suffered against D.C United August 7th. Both Mike Magee and Chris Rolfe are listed as probable, but it sounds like Magee will start. Rolfe will likely star the game on the bench.

Egidio Arévalo Rios is expected to make his debut for the Fire. If Arévalo Rios can bring the type of grit to the table that we are all expecting (or at least I am), the Fire midfield will be a lot tougher to push around.

As Adam pointed out in his preview, it has been a long time since the Fire have won on turf. On the road and on turf will make this game a difficult one, but three points here would be a huge boost for the Fire in the playoff hunt.
