Bieler and Rosell back for streaking Sporting KC

[MLS PREVIEW: Week 31] After sitting out last week's 2-1 win over Toronto FC, Claudio Bieler and Uri Rosell will both be back in the Sporting Kansas City squad for its match on Friday night against the visiting Philadelphia Union, winless in its last five games.

Sporting KC has won three in a row after losing four of its five previous games. It will move into a tie for first place with New York with a win.

A Union victory would put it back above the red line ahead of New England and Chicago. Philadelphia, which was idle last week, has fallen into seventh place, behind Chicago on wins.
