[MLS PREVIEW: Week 24] Real Salt Lake, which leads the race for the Supporters' Shield on goals scored over New York, will look to end its three-game winless streak in MLS play when it hosts the Houston Dynamo, one of the hottest teams in MLS, in one of two interconference matches on Saturday.

The Dynamo takes a four-game unbeaten streak (including three wins) into the match at Rio Tinto Stadium. Houston is 8-0-1 at home against RSL but has won just one of eight games in Utah.

Houston has Will Bruin back from Gold Cup duty, Honduran Oscar Boniek Garcia is coming off a great game in the 3-1 win over Columbus, and it just signed Garcia's countryman, Alexander Lopez.

-- Clint Dempsey traveled with the Seattle Sounders to face Toronto FC in the other interconference match though the likelihood of him going 90 minutes is "very small," says Sounders coach Sigi Schmid. "Whether that's starting and coming off or coming on as a sub, we'll have to see."
