MONTREAL - With a Major League Soccer playoff berth out of reach, the Montreal Impact will now focus on moving from the bottom of the league standings. Marquese Chriss Jersey .The Impact, last in the Eastern Conference with 24 points from 29 games, will look for a season-high third straight win Saturday when it visits the Columbus Crew.Were still going to put out the lineup that we think can get the best result, said Montreal forward Jack McInerney. Coming into this game, we dont want to be the last team in the league so getting a result against Columbus is big for us.A win Saturday would certainly help Montreals quest to move from last in the overall standings. The Impact (6-17-6) is tied for that dubious honour with the Western Conferences Chivas USA, which is in Seattle on Saturday.Montreal will also look to play the role of spoiler. Columbus (10-9-10, 40 points) is fifth in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of the Philadelphia Union and three in front of Toronto FC, which has a game in hand.If we can make it difficult for some other teams, why not? said Montreal manager Frank Klopas, whose team has five games remaining. Theres still a lot to play for.McInerney agrees.Hopefully we can go there and spoil the party, he said. Im sure theyre looking at it as one of the biggest games of their season.They can either solidify a playoff spot or get in some trouble.Montreal resumes MLS play after reaching the knockout stage of the CONCACAF Champions League on Wednesday night. The Impact cemented its first quarter-final berth in six years, finishing atop Group 3 after the New York Red Bulls and C.D. FAS battled to a 0-0 tie in El Salvador.Like many of his players, Klopas watched Wednesdays contest and was quite pleased with the result.Im very happy for the club and players, he said. Its been a difficult year.Its important, the way were playing now, to finish on a positive note. This goes a long way to building a lot of momentum for the team. Were a different team at this point in the season.Despite being eliminated from playoff contention, the Impact has turned its season around.Montreal managed just five wins over its first 25 games in all competitions but has gone 6-4-1 since Aug. 5, which includes three home MLS victories. One was a 2-0 decision over Columbus on Aug. 30 as designated player Ignacio Piatti scored his first two goals for the club.It was the Crews lone loss in six games. Columbus is one of the leagues hottest teams, having gone 6-2-3 since mid July.Theyre organized, they look to play out of the back and theyre good in possession, said Klopas. Last time we were there we didnt do well in the midfield battle.We have to be good with the ball.Columbus earned a 2-1 home win over Montreal on July 19. Bernardo Anor had both goals as the Crew effectively controlled play in the midfield.Montreal is a dismal 0-11-3 on the road in MLS action this season. To break into the win column, the Impact backline must contain Argentine forward Federico Higuain, the Crews leader in goals (10), assists (six), shots (63) and shots on goal (24).Columbus is a dangerous team with Higuain, said Klopas. When hes able to dictate the rhythm and tempo of the game and get balls in the final third, hes a guy that you always have to be aware of.Midfielder Ignacio Piatti (knee) isnt expected to play for Montreal so Jeremy Gagnon-Lapare, 19, will likely make his fourth consecutive start. And with Marco Di Vaio likely to retire next month, the expectation is Klopas will give McInerney more playing time in the remaining games.Midfielder Justin Mapp, who hasnt played since Aug. 16 against the Chicago Fire, could also see action Saturday. Mapp has been bothered by a groin injury all season but practised Wednesday.Its good to be back, he said. Ive been out for a little while now, but its good to be out there with the guys.It feels good to touch the ball, and to play a little bit as opposed to just running around the field.Captain Patrice Bernier (foot) and goalkeeper Troy Perkins (back) are both doubtful.NOTES: Columbus is looking for its fifth straight home win . . . Crew goalkeeper Steve Clark is fifth overall with 91 saves. a€| Defender Krzysztof Krol returns to Montreals lineup after serving a one-game red card suspension. a€| Columbus has signed Emanuel Pogatetz, the former Middlesbrough defender and Austrian national team captain. Josh Jackson Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson knows few people will be giving the Charlotte Bobcats a chance to upset the Miami Heat in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. T.J. Warren Jersey . Serves hit by her surgically repaired shoulder often missed the mark, resulting in 12 double-faults. http://www.sunsofficialshop.us/charles-barkley-suns-jersey/ . The deals were announced on Friday. Beckham will receive $4.175 million in base salary, while De Aza will receive $4.25 million. Beckham hit .267 with five home runs and 24 RBIs over 103 games last season, his fifth with the White Sox.Hes the most prolific receiver in CFL history and a future member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, but theres no guarantee Geroy Simon will return to help the Saskatchewan Roughriders defend their Grey Cup title. The Riders acquired the veteran slotback from the B.C. Lions in January 2013 to provide veteran leadership for a squad looking to make a successful Grey Cup run on home soil. After enduring one of the worst seasons statistically of his illustrious CFL career, Simon stood tall in the title game, registering three catches for 67 yards and two TDs in leading Saskatchewan to a 45-23 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Mosaic Field. However, Brendan Taman, the Riders general manager and vice-president of football operations, couldnt guarantee Simons return during a CFL conference call Tuesday. "Geroy and I have, obviously, a pretty good relationship so when we made this deal last year to acquire him we knew at the end of the first year he played for us that wed sit down and talk about his role," Taman said. "Obviously we have a contract issue were going to have to talk about, too, so that plan is ongoing ... those talks are progressing, you could say, one way or the other. "Hes got as good a chance of not being back as he will be back." The six-foot 198-pound Simon, who turns 39 in September, had just 40 catches for 565 yards and three TDs last year, missing the first three regular-season games due to injury. The native of Johnstown, Pa., is the most prolific receiver in CFL history with 1,029 receptions for 16,352 yards -- both all-time records -- with 103 TDs ovver 15 seasons. Tyson Chandler Jersey. "Obviously he had a good year for us and did a good job for us," Taman said. "His status for 14 is to be determined and were still in talks about that." At the root of the talks, not surprisingly, is money. Simon was reportedly set to earn $205,000 with B.C. heading into the 2013 season. But the Lions were prepared to pay roughly half that while giving Simon a reduced role. When Simon and the Lions couldnt reach an agreement, GM Wally Buono, out of respect for the veteran, gave Simon permission to seek a trade rather than release him outright. When the Riders acquired Simon, they signed him to a one-year deal, plus an option, that reportedly called for a $170,000 base salary that, with bonuses, could increase to about $200,000. "There was an agreement in place that after the first year we would talk about a second year going forward," Taman said. "That was mainly, obviously, financial related. "Right now hes still on the same contract that he was on and if we can work that out and (it) stays that way well see. But we have some discussions we still have to do with him." Given the off-season departures of running back Korey Sheets (Oakland, NFL) and Weston Dressler (Kansas City, NFL), Simon was expected to be a key figure in the Riders offence this season. Also gone from Saskatchewans Grey Cup-winning squad are safety Craig Butler (free agent, Hamilton), defensive linemen Keith Shologan (Ottawa expansion draft) and Jermaine McElveen (free agent, Montreal) as well as linebacker Diamond Ferri (free agent, Montreal).
