Houston Dynamo finally brought an end to the disastrous run of form that they have been experiencing in recent weeks after a 1-0 win over DC United. Houston came into the match with no victories since the 1-0 victory over Laredo Heat in the U.S. Open cup. A number of matches have finished either as defeats or draws. It has seen Houston Dynamo slip towards the bottom of the table. There now just one place above the bottom, which is occupied by Montréal Impact. They have played the same number of games as Montréal but the 22 points compared to the 14 points gives them some pride.
Houston have been recruiting a number of important players in the last few weeks. Luis Garrido and DaMarcus Beasley are some of the names that have come to Houston. Even though they have a number of players representing the US national team, Houston have struggled to make an impact in the MLS. Team captain Davis is hoping that this will now change in the forthcoming matches. He says that Houston Dynamo have enough quality in the ranks to be able to go on a winning spree. There is renewed confidence in the team and this is quite clear from the latest press conference given by Davis.
“It’s been the message that’s been sent for a while now. I don’t know why we would go out on the field without the utmost confidence. I think Sunday was a game for us to build off. There’s no reason for us now to step on the field and lower that level of play. When you also start to bring in competition for some spots it also raises some eyebrows. It gets competition going and some blood boiling. It’s always a good thing, competition in training, competitions for spots on the weekend,” said Davis.
