The Philadelphia Union will be looking for their first win of the season as they host the Columbus Crew today at 3:30 in PPL Park. The Union are coming off their first point from a scoreless draw with the Vancouver Whitecaps, while the Crew will look to bounce back from a 4-1 hammering at the hands of the New York Red Bulls.

Union coach Peter Nowak says his team won't be fooled into a false sense of security after the Crew's poor performance last week.

"I'll say that the result against New York, that's not where we should be looking," Nowak said. "That was completely different from the game Columbus played against Montreal and especially in Toronto where they were very organized. They had a couple of chances (against Toronto) and scored the goal and won the game. So, we looked more (at those games) instead of getting fooled by last week's result."

It's also dollar dog day at PPL Park. So go check out some soccer and eat hot dogs until you're sick.

The game can be seen on NBC Sports Network, who previewed the match in this video.
