[MLS PREVIEW] How can a dire situation get even worse? In the case of Toronto, to a league-record scoreless streak (642 minutes) drought tack on an injury to its best striker.

FC DALLAS (11-8-3) vs. TORONTO FC (5-12-5)
Saturday, 8:30 p.m. ET, Direct Kick


Danny Dichio has joined the TFC bandaged list after suffering a foot injury Tuesday in training. X-rays revealed no break of the metatarsal bone and the result of an MRI is pending. Dichio had just returned to the lineup in TFC's last game, a 1-0 loss to D.C. two weeks ago, after sitting out nearly a month with a hip flexor.

Right back Marvell Wynne played right mid against D.C. after sitting out three games with a hamstring strain. Kenny Stamatopoulos will stay in goal, as Greg Sutton resumed training this week after being sidelined for more than two months because of a concussion.

Dallas beat Seattle, 2-1, in overtime in the Open Cup Tuesday yet still is chafing at a 4-0 thrashing by D.C. last weekend, not to mention the 4-0 beating TFC dished out on BMO Field June 17 with goals by Maurice Edu, Carl Robinson, Jeff Cunningham and Dichio.

Cunningham and Dichio are injured, and Robinson is on international duty with Wales, so FCD holds most of the high cards.

Denilson played 35 minutes as a sub against D.C. and went 94 minutes against Seattle; midfield catalyst Juan Toja went the full 120 in the Open Cup after starting and playing 82 minutes in the United match.
