FOXBOROUGH -- Sporting Kansas City is up next for the Revolution (Saturday, 7:30 p.m., NBC Sports Boston), but Revs manager Brad Friedel took a few moments after Tuesday’s training to go over a little bit of what happened in the 2-2 draw with Columbus over the week.

“We knew (Saturday) was going to be open at times; we know that most of our games are going to be entertaining with the tempo of soccer that we’re trying to play,” Friedel said. “Some teams, I guess, will come and will try to sit back when they come to our place, but I think most teams try to win on the road, and we’re going to try and win both home and away.

“You try to defend as best as you can, but the object of the game is to score. We tried to do just that.”

Friedel is happy with the balance in his club right now, which sees Diego Fagundez and Teal Bunbury tied with three goals apiece – Bunbury with three goals in the last four matches -- heading into their eighth league match of the season.
