- The defense rests! That’s the problem »

Toronto FC will be without the services of defender Nana Attakora as the team heads into Columbus.
“Nana hurt his hamstring last night (Against TFC’s penalty kicks loss to River Plate) from what I’m hearing so really really disappointed because he’s had a real good run with the team” says Head Coach Chris Cummins. “He’s out for the weekend, and I don’t know how long he is going to be.”
Adrian Serioux is questionable with a knee injury.
The Reds head into Columbus where Ali Gerba is expected to see some action a Crew team has yet to lose on home turf this season.
Sitting just one point behind Columbus in the MLS East standings, the Reds could jump back to first place with a win…But Dwayne De Rosario says unlike last week, any kind of result in Columbus is acceptable.
“I think a draw would be ok but a win would obviously be best” says De-Ro. “We should have had the win against Houston, but hopefully we can get a win in Columbus and balance it out.”
Both games between Columbus and TFC this season have resulted in 1-1 draws.
