Sporting Kansas City host Nashville SC in the MLS on Sunday night, as the hosts look to continue a run of decent form that has seen them win two games in a row.

It might also be a good time for Sporting Kansas City to face Nashville, with the MLS newbies having failed to achieve a win in their last five games.

Nashville have drawn their last three games, and have only scored twice in their last five games. That form needs to turn around if Nashville are to make a serious push for a playoff spot.

Sporting Kansas City have beaten Chicago Fire and Houston Dynamo by solitary goals in their last two games, and are striving to ensure that they can keep that momentum going.
