Union's starting XI tonight v. FC Dallas:
GK ... Chase Harrison
D ... Ray Gaddis, Carlos Valdes, Sheanon Williams, Michael Farfan
MF ... Gabriel Gomez, Brian Carroll, Michael Lahoud, Keon Daniel
F ... Danny Mwanga, Lio Pajoy

A few notes about the lineup:
  • Rookie moment. Chase Harrison will make the first start of his MLS career in place of Zac MacMath, who will miss the match after re-aggravating his concussion-like symptoms during a collision Wednesday in training. (MacMath did not make the trip.)
  • Two strikers, two goals? Last week, in a loss to New York, the Union went with two forwards...and Lio Pajoy scored two goals, playing off Danny Mwanga as the center striker. Tonight, they're going with the same two up top.
  • Know Your Farfans. The Union are going with Michael Farfan --- and not Gabriel Farfan, who completed his three-game suspension --- at left back tonight.
  • Lahoud debut. Acquired Thursday from Chivas USA, in exchange for Danny Califf, Michael Lahoud will make his debut for the Union tonight with a start in the midfield. Time to see the Union's return on the deal.
  • No Adu. Freddy Adu will serve his one-game suspension after incurring a red card last week.
