Revolution Vs. Crew Lineups: Lee Nguyen On The Bench, Jerry Bengtson Starts

New England Revolution head coach Jay Heaps has been forced to continue shuffling his lineup as he prepares for Saturday night's match against the Columbus Crew. Injuries and international breaks have made it nearly impossible for Heaps to put a string of games together with his best lineup, and injuries have struck again here.

Notably, Lee Nguyen has moved to the bench for this match, presumably due to the ankle issues he has been dealing with for the last week. His replacement, Kelyn Rowe, makes a return to the starting lineup for the first time in several weeks.

Benny Feilhaber also gets the start after finding himself on the bench last week. Fernando Cardenas has moved back to the bench, where some would argue he is best utilized as a super sub. Jerry Bengtson is also starting alongside Saer Sene after getting his first full week of training in with the team since before the Olympics.
