With RW Calen Carr out with a strained hamstring, Houston coach Dominic Kinnear will likely turn to forward Mac Kandji, who has played well off the bench in recent weeks.
The Dynamo, who come into the game in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with 19 points, will try to take advantage of their game against Toronto, who are in last place in the conference with only 3 points on the season.
It's hard to overemphasize how bad they have been this season: their record is 1-10 while their goal differential is already -15, the worst mark by far in all of MLS. The next closest team, FC Dallas, has a goal differential of -10 while Houston is at -1.
