For Toronto FC, last week's bye couldn't have come at a better time.
The Reds have lost two in a row, but used the bye to get several injured players closer to full health. Michael Bradley, Jermain Defoe, Doniel Henry, Ashtone Morgan, Dwayne De Rosario, Alvaro Rey and Jeremy Hall have all missed time this season. Defoe is set to return against the Revolution after missing over a month with a hamstring injury. Bradley and Henry should also be ready to go.
New England travels to Canada on a three-game undefeated streak, with a 2-0-1 record in its last three matches. Teal Bunbury scored his first Revs goal last week in a 2-0 win over Sporting Kansas City.
The Revs have also had injury issues this season, but key attacker Kelyn Rowe returned to full training this week after missing five straight games with a hamstring issue. His status for the TFC game is questionable.
New England will be looking for its first ever win at BMO Field, as it sports a 0-2-5 mark all time in Toronto.
