N.Y. try to find form against Colorado

Jul 19, 2011 - 6:15 PM Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - Red Bull New York will look to get its season back on track as it travels to Dick's Sporting Goods Park to face the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night.

The Red Bulls are coming off of a 0-0 draw at Chivas USA on Saturday, and have just two wins from their last 14 Major League Soccer matches, accumulating nine draws in that stretch.

Veteran German goalkeeper Frank Rost made his MLS debut in the draw with Chivas. He was not called into action much, but he showed a great deal of experience with his composure and decision-making.

With one game under his belt, Rost is already looking to build upon his clean sheet, recognizing that the prize doesn't come until the end of the season.

"I think from game to game, I will get better and the important matches will come during the playoffs," Rost told

One of Rost's strengths is his ability to keep the defensive unit very organized. This will be crucial for New York if it wants to claim three points away from home.

It may prove to be easier for the New York back four to stay organized Wednesday night, as it will not have to contend with Colorado's leading scorer.

The Rapids announced Tuesday that Conor Casey will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. Casey, the club's all-time leading scorer, tallied six goals on the year.

Instead, Colorado will rely on newly crowned MLS All-Star Omar Cummings for goals. The Jamaican international was added to the All-Star Game roster by the MLS team's head coach, Hans Backe.

The Rapids are coming off of a 4-3 loss to Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday at CenturyLink Field. They took the lead in the match on two different occasions, but could not maintain their advantage.

Colorado and New York played to a 2-2 draw when they met on May 25th at Red Bull Arena. Jeff Larentowicz bagged a brace for the Rapids on that day, and all four goals in the game came in the span of six first-half minutes.

Larentowicz notched his first of the game in the 27th minute, but Thierry Henry quickly brought the Red Bulls level two minutes later. After Larentowicz converted a free kick in the 32nd minute, Luke Rodgers provided the final goal in the 33rd minute of the match to rescue a point for New York.
