Fire hope Wizards are quick remedy

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- For whatever reason the Chicago Fire typically have faired well against the Kansas City Wizards. That bodes well for them as they hope to quickly erase the memory of last week's 4-1 loss to Toronto FC.

The Fire have a 20-9-7 all-time record against the Wizards as they make the trek to Kansas City for a Saturday match at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.

"They're a team that we enjoy to play," Fire midfielder Logan Pause said.

Chicago (2-3-2) faces a Wizards team that is 2-0-1 at home and 2-3-1 overall. The Fire could potentially change up their front-line system for this match. Fire head coach Carlos de los Cobos said earlier this week that he might not go with the one-attacker formation that the team has utilized for the past several weeks.

"Maybe we'll play with two forwards," De los Cobos said. "We need to find a good result. The last match, I think that's the first match where we didn't look good."
