Sounders hope to clinch playoff spot with win over Houston Wednesday night

SEATTLE -- The Sounders are back at home and training for the crucial match against the Houston Dynamo Wednesday night.

Seattle is in the middle of a four-game winning streak. If the team wins the match against Houston, they are guaranteed a spot in the MLS playoffs. And the coaches say that's what the plan to do.

By the numbers, the Sounders do have an advantage -- they are ranked 5th in the Western Conference while Houston is 10th, the lowest in the conference.
