Revolution Notes: Getting ready for Columbus again, winger partnerships, Wright scored for Birmingham, and more

FOXBOROUGH — Winning breeds confidence, as the saying goes. Will it continue into this weekend?

The Revolution, fresh off Saturday’s 2-1 win over Minnesota United, returned to training Tuesday in search of win No. 2 of the 2019 season as they started preparations for their trip to Columbus.

New England plays the Crew at MAPFRE Stadium Saturday night (7:30 p.m.).

“(Saturday’s win) certainly gives us a little bit of a little bit of confidence going into the next game and, you know, no doubt the players will will look forward to train this week and we're going to look forward to a trip to Columbus," Brad Friedel said prior to training outside the Revs’ locker room Tuesday morning.

The second-year Revs manager praised the play of his side from Saturday, and he’s expecting competition for places in this week’s matchday squad to rise even further than it did last week, with several changes made.
