Following an impressive come-from-behind victory against the San Jose Earthquakes on the road, the Houston Dynamo are back at Houston Sports Park to prepare for a home matchup against Minnesota United FC. Coming off a 4-0 thrashing of Premier League side Everton, the Loons are unbeaten in their last five in Major League Soccer - but only sit six points above the Dynamo heading into tomorrow night's match.

Rookie attacker Thor Úlfarsson comes into the weekend in fine form, starting four of the past five matches for the Dynamo and netting two goals along that span. The Duke alum sits one goal behind tying the rookie record for goals in a single season - set by Will Bruin in 2011.
