Revolution-Toronto FC Preview

The New England Revolution again appear to be peaking at the right time, though they've been unable to separate from Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference race.

Toronto has a chance to pull even with the surging Revolution in the standings when the clubs meet Sunday, yet may have to play without its top scorer.

New England (11-9-7) brings a season-high four-game win streak into BMO Field & is 5-0-1 over its last six. The Revs enter Sunday's key match fourth in the East, within striking distance of first place & 10 points clear of being out of playoff position.
