The Fires record (5-3-3) isnt bad, but the club has been inconsistent in the first third of the Major League Soccer season.
The Fire will have a new face in its lineup Friday night when it takes on Chivas USA at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles.
The suspensions handed out to Fire coach Frank Klopas and defender Jalil Anibaba by the Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee were reluctantly accepted on Tuesday.
The most important match for the Fire last season came against the Seattle Sounders, and the result wasnt what the Fire wanted.
