Revolution Vs. Impact Lineups: Soares And Alston Healthy, Bengtson Starts

Despite injury concerns, Jay Heaps appears to have felt comfortable enough in his roster to trot out a full-strength lineup for Sunday night's clash against the Montreal Impact. The New England Revolution are fighting to end a five-game winless streak that dates back to the second week of July and includes a loss to the Impact in Montreal.

Both A.J. Soares and Kevin Alston were listed as questionable in Friday's injury report, but it would appear that the extra day of rest did them some good as both will take the pitch on Sunday night as starters. Having a full-strength first-choice back line could be crucial to the Revs' hopes of containing the Montreal attack.

Jerry Bengtson, who returned last week after an exciting and successful Olympic campaign with Honduras, will make his first-ever MLS start. Bengtson has made two appearances for the Revolution since signing, scoring a goal on his debut against New York in July.
