Here are Colin's keys to beating Houston at home.

Tighter defending

We’ve conceded multiple goals in four of our past five MLS matches.

The back four must get back to getting blocks and getting tighter.

And we must be reacting quicker in and around our 18-yard-box.

Attacking corners

I’m not convinced about Houston defending corners.

This is an area that the ‘Caps can exploit.

The simplicity of the goal in St. Louis proved that with good delivery and players attacking the ball, we will score goals.

Home sweet home

After playing five of six games on the road, we’re now at home for four straight.

The crowd and influence they can have in the next four games can be massive.

The players must give them something to get behind.
