Three points from three games, in which the Rapids have kept three clean sheets yet failed to find the net at the other end. The latest scoreless draw was at Houston Dynamo on Saturday.

Saturday's result means that the Rapids become the first team in MLS history to register 0-0 ties from their opening three games.

Is there a striker crisis? What's going awry in front of goal?

Colorado Rapids produced another gritty road performance to prise a point away from Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening.

It was the third successive time Pablo Mastroeni’s side has completed a goalless game.

The tie was probably a fair reflection of the 90 minutes but, for the second straight encounter, the Rapids faced an opposition keeper in fine form. Josh Saunders had preserved a draw for New York City last weekend at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. This evening Tyler Deric made a couple of crucial stops from Marcelo Sarvas in the first half.

Having laid the foundations, it is time to start building upwards. Colorado Rapids have an array of zeros on their record right now. No defeats, no goals conceded - that’s good. No wins, no goals scored - well, it could be better.

Match number three for the Colorado Rapids means a trip to Texas to tackle Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium, for what will be their first contest against Western Conference opposition this season.

Former Rapids' midfielder Nathan Sturgis (pictured above) netted the equalizer last weekend for the Dynamo in a 1-1 tie at LA Galaxy, but Owen Coyle's side has been hit by injuries and international call-ups.

Houston at the weekend, your thoughts …
“I think it’s going to be a tough game. Going to Houston is always a difficult game; the result over the weekend against a team like LA brings a lot of confidence into that group. We’ve been preparing accordingly and are really excited about taking our game to Houston and putting on a performance worthy of a great result.”
