Rich Thompson previews tonight’s match with Sporting Kansas City at Gillette Stadium, where the Revolution have outscored opponents 9-1 over four home games this season.

With three games in the next eight days, beginning with tonight’s match, there is no time to linger on the past. Nevertheless, a read through Hayden Bird’s five takeaways from last Saturday’s draw in Columbus is a good way to get primed for tonight as the Revs look to remain unbeaten in April.
