Reds Ready To Herd Goats
TFC v. Chivas: where you can watch, listen & participate.
April 1, 2011

Toronto FC will kickoff its third match of the 2011 MLS season at 1 p.m. on Saturday at BMO Field against winless Chivas USA.

It will be the first match for Toronto since 2008 without Dwayne De Rosario as a Red. The former captain was traded to the New York Red Bulls on Friday in exchange for 21-year old midfielder Tony Tchani, left back Danleigh Borman and a 2012 first round MLS SuperDraft pick.

Earlier in the week Toronto bolstered its backline by adding Jamaican international defender Dicoy Williams.

The Reds enjoyed a successful home opener last week, beating Portland Timbers 2-0 courtesy of a Javier Martina brace. One of the Dutch forward's sublime strikes netted him MLS AT&T Goal of the Week honours.

Playing on a hard, cold pitch that showed the effects of an extended winter in Toronto, the Reds didn't get to dominate possession but they walked away with three points and a clean sheet.

Chivas on the other hand is coming off a midweek U.S. Open Cup loss to Portland, and its first two MLS matches have also been defeats at home to Sporting Kansas City and Colorado in consecutive weeks.

The match will be shown live on TSN at 1:00 p.m. ET. Luke Wileman and Jason DeVos will have the call.

Dan Dunleavy & Bob Iarusci will be on the dial with Sportsnet Radio FAN 590 from 1:00 p.m. ET.

TorontoFC.ca will host a live chat with Asif Hossain from 12:45 p.m. ET. You can comment on the match, ask questions and watch highlights as they arrive.
