The hosts were held to a 1-1 draw by the 10-man Philadelphia Union last time out and will aim to quickly bounce back to winning ways.
New York Red Bulls failed to pick up successive MLS victories last Wednesday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Philadelphia Union.
In a keenly contested affair, Patryk Klimala gave New York Red Bulls the lead from the penalty spot before Sergio Santos restored parity late in the second half.
Gerhard Struber’s men have managed just one win from their last four outings, picking up two draws and losing once.
This slight slip up has seen New York Red Bulls drop down to seventh place in the Eastern Conference, level on 17 points with New York City and Columbus Crew.
Meanwhile, Inter Miami’s horrid run continued last time out as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of CF Montreal.
Mathieu Choiniere’s first-half strike was all that separated the sides, but it was enough to hand Montreal their third straight win against Inter Miami.
The result condemned Phil Neville’s side to a fifth straight defeat in the MLS, and their sixth in seven games.
The poor run has seen Inter Miami drop to 13th place in the Eastern Conference table, level on points with rock-bottom Toronto.
