The San Jose Earthquakes look to bounce back from a loss at the New England Revolution last weekend when they host the Bastian Schweinsteiger-less Chicago Fire on Saturday afternoon at Avaya Stadium.

The Quakes (3-6-2) had a four match unbeaten streak snapped at Gillette Stadium, conceding three times before Vako's cosmetic goal two minutes from full time. 

The Fire (4-4-4) are coming off back-to-back wins for the first time in two years after wins over the Revs and Minnesota United, plus have not conceded in three consecutive matches without defeat. Nico Gaitan and Aleksandar Katai scored first-half goals against the Loons, but Gaitan is out with a thigh injury.
