Fire, Dallas clash in 1-sided Brimstone series

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- We are into the tail end of May, with plenty of Major League Soccer action left in the tank. But with a 2-3-3 record and a middle-of-the-pack spot in the Eastern Conference, the Chicago Fire are looking to change the tone of its season.

The Fire hope they can find the win column when they host FC Dallas at 7 p.m. Thursday at Toyota Park (game televised on ESPN2).

"We need to win," Fire head coach Carlos de los Cobos said. "We need to win this match and be aggressive."

The Brimstone Cup -- awarded annually to the winner of the Chicago-Dallas season series -- has been a tremendously one-sided honor in Dallas' favor. The Fire have not taken the head-to-head series since 2001 -- the only time they have won the Brimstone outright.
