Sporting Kansas City At New York Red Bulls: Henry Trying To Stay Hot

First place in the Eastern Conference is up for grabs today, as the New York Red Bulls prepare to host Sporting Kansas City at Red Bull Arena.

Thierry Henry, who is the obvious focus for the Red Bulls tonight, will be looking to score in his second straight game. Henry blasted home a goal in the 38th minute against D.C. United in a 4-0 rout. Henry also tallied an assist in the game, and probably played one of his best games of the year. Henry is one of those rare players who has brilliant vision and a lethal strike. He used both against United, he's looking to use both again tonight.

Red Bulls young star Juan Agudelo also had a fantastic game, stretching United's defense often and finally powering home a highlight reel goal for New York. Agudelo is already growing as a player by the game, his caps with the national team have helped immensely in this regard, and his presence on the pitch can't be ignored.

Hans Backe has left the lineup the same for tonight's matchup.
