The Revolution look quite healthy heading into tomorrow night’s match against Seattle Sounders FC.

In particular, the backline seems to have some much needed fresh bodies available.

Having played the last few weeks with makeshift center backs in light of injuries to Darrius Barnes and Emmanuel Osei, and having used two players out of position last weekend when Cory Gibbs joined them on the bench, it will be a relief for many to see that these bodies are becoming much more able. Barnes remains listed on the injury report as out, but Osei is no longer listed at all and Gibbs has been upgraded to probable from questionable. Kevin Alston, who did not miss time, was listed as probable earlier in the week. He is no longer listed.

Lineup implications after the jump.

Today’s injury report has a lot of changes from late last week, but overall, excepting Preston Burpo‘s status, they’re positive ones for the Revolution.

While Burpo has been downgraded to out as expected and required by the injury he sustained on Saturday night and the subsequent surgery to treat it, Matt Reis has been upgraded from the same distinction for the first time all season. The keeper is listed as doubtful, clearing the way for his return. Reis’s return to New England will bear serious watching in the next few weeks; it’s not unrealistic to think he’ll be suited up against Seattle, though Bobby Shuttleworth will definitely be drawing the start.

For a full ninety minutes, the New England Revolution played what was to this point their best soccer of the season.

Unfortunately, they walked away without anything to show for it.

Robbie Rogers put a rebound shot off the top post and into the net in stoppage time to break a tie and put the still unbeaten Columbus Crew (now 3-0-2) ahead 3-2, erasing the effect of an inspired New England effort.

“I think for 91 or 92 minutes, we stuck to our game plan, we did our job and to be honest, this hurts a lot more than getting blown out,” said midfielder Pat Phelan.  “I think we deserved a point.”

The New England Revolution returned to training this morning as the club prepares for its first Wednesday night match of the year, when it will play host to Chivas USA.

The Goats come into New England with a record identical to the Revs at 2-3-1.  They are coming off of a surprising draw against the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

Having played the final 22 minutes of last night’s match against FC Dallas down two men — and the final 39 down at least one — the New England Revolution were happy to walk away with one point, drawing the Hoops by a score of 1-1.

Kheli Dube, who assisted on New England’s lone goal, and Joseph Niouky were both handed red cards in the match’s second half when the contest started getting a bit chippy.  Holding on for the draw is indicative of just how badly the club did not want to miss out on that point, and perhaps of how much New England needed it.

Is Jankauskas ready to go in 2010?

by Adam Vaccaro

Revs striker Edgaras Jankauskas has been participating heavily in training this week.  On Tuesday, he was listed as a full participant, and on Wednesday, the Lithuanian striker assisted on a nifty play in an 8-on-8 scrimmage.

Through only four matches, it’s tough to really gauge the Revs’ offensive attack.  Five of the club’s six goals come from two players, one of whom has seen very little playing time this season (Kenny Mansally, who scored two against DC United in the match’s second half).  Rookie forward Zack Schiwalski is responsible for three more, all recorded within fourteen minutes of the Revs’ 4-1 victory over Toronto FC.  Aside from the small number of scorers, the season’s sample size at large is still far too small to make any claims.
