Saturday might as well be a must-win for the Montreal Impact.

The Impact are currently seventh in the Eastern Conference playoff race, a full five points behind the New York Red Bulls for the sixth and final playoff spot. With only seven games remaining, they’ll need a full three points from Saturday’s home match against lowly Minnesota United to have any real chance of catching the field.

Minnesota will head into Saturday’s match on a tight turnaround. The Loons played on Wednesday at Vancouver, falling 3-0 at the streaking Whitecaps to fall into a tie for last in the West. Given the short break between matches and the cross-country travel from Vancouver to Montreal, head coach Adrian Heath could potentially make a few lineup changes on Saturday.
