Caleb Porter praised his “evolving” New England Revolution side as they prepare to face Vancouver Whitecaps on the back of consecutive wins.

In their opening 13 games, New England only had two wins on the board in the Eastern Conference, sitting bottom with seven points.

Though they still prop up the standings, they are now on 13 points after wins over Nashville SC and New York Red Bulls, with Porter hopeful they can keep building on this momentum.

“The biggest key is our mentality has been stronger,” Porter said, as quoted in The Blazing Musket substack.

“We’re finding ways to get results. That evolution, I’m very pleased with, so I think, for me, it’s unquestionable, we’re evolving in every aspect.”

“We know we’re in a hole, there’s no doubt about it. We have to continue to fight our way out, and it’s going to take every game, and it’s going to take until the end of the season.”

Vancouver, meanwhile, are fifth in the Western Conference after back-to-back victories of their own against Sporting Kansas City and Colorado Rapids.

After their mid-season break, Vanni Sartini is aiming to improve on some of the weaknesses shown in the first half of the campaign.

“I think we did okay [in the first half],” he said. “We’re doing well. I think that we were doing very well defensively – I’d say the best in my years as head coach here.

“I think we can do a little more in the final third. We are playing well, but we need to be better at finishing the action more. If we can do that, we can aspire to go to the top four positions.”
