FC Dallas faces must win match with Colorado

It's crunch time and FC Dallas faces a must-win match on Saturday with the Colorado Rapids at Pizza Hut Park.  A Colorado win will ensure them a playoff berth and eliminate FC Dallas.  To have any chance at the MLS playoffs, FC Dallas must beat Colorado and then travel to Seattle and win the regular season finally. 

FC Dallas has been red hot of late behind the scoring of Jeff Cunningham.  Nobody even mentions Kenny Cooper's name anymore since Cunningham has run out to an MLS leading 17 goals on the season.  The Hoops have four wins in their last five and three straight victories for the first time all year.

Even then it might not be enough.   Even if FC Dallas wins both games, Seattle and Colorado can claim berths ahead of Dallas by winning in their other match.  Win, lose or draw it is nice to see FC Dallas making strides at the end of the year after such a horrible season for the most part.  Maybe some hope for next year?
