The Chicago Fire entered Saturday afternoon's home match against the New England Revolution with ties in each of its previous five games. Although the final result saw that run extended to six games, it wasn't for lack of late drama.

First half goals by the Fire's red-hot Quincy Amarikwa and New England's Lee Nguyen secured a 1-1 result in front of 15,743 at Toyota Park, but they saved plenty of fireworks for the end after Amarikwa's second yellow card in the 73rd minute.

Is Saturday's match already a must win?

Fire Confidential | ChicagoNow at related • 1 view
The "it's early" mantra starts to become more wearisome with each passing week. Six rounds into the 2014 campaign, the Fire have yet to record a victory and this Saturday's match against the New England Revolution may be the best chance to to collect all three points for a while. This next home match is followed by an off week and no team wants to sit on an extra seven days wait before the next game when they haven't tasted victory in two months.
