The Union gets back to work in the league on Sunday, with a Mother's Day clash against the Red Bulls at PPL Park.

The team is still struggling for offense, going down last Saturday in Seattle, 1-0.  They will be without Gabriel Farfan for one more game as he finishes his three-game suspension, and may be without starting goalkeeper Zac MacMath, who took a blow to the head at Seattle and is listed as 'out' with concussion symptoms.
