NOTES: At the midpoint of the season, Tampa Bay is the only MLS team without a home win. The Mutiny hasn't won at home since Aug. 16, a six-game span. ... Tampa Bay will attempt to break a 10-game winless streak and a seven-game losing string. ... Mutiny M Carlos Valderama will not be available after receiving his second red card in five games Saturday at Columbus. His two red cards tie the Mutiny record for most in a season. ... Tampa Bay D Chad McCarty (broken left ankle) and Scott Cannon (right IT Band irritation) are out. M/D Joe Addo (right hamstring strain) is questionable. ... United leads the all-time series 12-5-1 and holds a 6-3 edge in Tampa. ... Rongen was the Mutiny's first coach in 1996, leading the team to a 20-12 record and first place in the Eastern Conference.
