Not Winning is a Habit

Just as any team tries to make winning a habit, they try to prevent "not-winning" one as well. Columbus has officially hit their only real rough patch of games on the season. The draw in Houston over the weekend means that the Crew only have been able to manage 5 points from their last 6 games. This puts them down towards the bottom in terms of form with the likes of Atlanta United and Cincinnati.

The good news for the Crew is that they did finally get Darlington Nagbe (started) and Lucas Zelarayan (sub) back in the pitch. 

It was obvious that the team had learned to live without both as the team looked to be in a pre-season like form. They never tested the keeper and allowed attack after attack from Houston. The result only came via own goal.

With just four games left and no chance of missing the playoffs, the only thing Coach Porter will probably be working on is getting his team as close to 100% healthy before the knock out rounds.
