The timbers are on seventh position in this season in the western conference. They have played 32 matches and won 11, losing 13 and 8 tied. They play the Colorado Rapids on the 17th of October which will be a home game played at Providence Park. Only three games are left for the Timbers in this season and they cannot afford anymore slip up if they want to play in the post season play-offs. They were in a similar situation last season as they had fallen behind around the same time of the year. However, then they responded by raising their game and winning away games to finish third in the western conference. They defeated Real Salt Lake 1-0, LA Galaxy 5-2 and Colorado Rapids 4-1. If they want to make the play-offs they need to repeat the performance this season as well. Will the Timbers be able to pull it off, only time will tell?
