MONTREAL -- Small strikers with quick feet will be the focus of attention when the Philadelphia Union visit the Montreal Impact on Saturday night. The Unions Jack McInerney leads Major League Soccer with eight goals for fifth-place Philadelphia, while fourth-place Montreals Marco Di Vaio is among a group of three players with six goals, although the Impact striker has played two fewer games. The five-foot-10 McInerney, a 20-year-old known as Jack Mac, is having a breakout season in his third year as a pro since he was drafted seventh overall out of high school in 2010 by the Union. His speed around the goal and ability to get open is similar in style to the 36-year-old Di Vaio, who is listed at five foot 11. McInerney will likely be a handful to veteran Montreal centre backs Alessandro Nesta and Matteo Ferrari. "Its important that our defence marks him well because hes doing very well," said Montreal midfielder Patrice Bernier. "He has good movement and hes very fast. "It will be a difficult game for Alessandro and Matteo. Well need to play a strong game. Theyve won three times away, so its a dangerous team." Philadelphia (5-4-3) has been hard to read this season, going 3-2-1 away and 2-2-1 at home. They are coming off a three-game stretch in which they lost 4-1 at home to Los Angeles between a pair of 1-0 wins over Chicago. The Impact (6-2-2) are 4-0-1 on home turf. In their last MLS outing at Saputo Stadium, they pulled out a 3-2 win over Salt Lake on May 11 on late goals from Di Vaio and Ferrari. Nesta is due to return from a nagging adducter injury to bolster the central defence, but questions remain for the fullbacks. Jeb Brovsky, who along with goalkeeper Troy Perkins has played every minute of every game this season, is a question mark after breaking his nose in six places in a 0-0 draw with Vancouver in Voyageurs Cup play on May 15. Fullback Hassoun Camara left practice early on Thursday for reasons unclear, while Maxim Tissot of Gatineau, Que., who made his first MLS start at right back against Salt Lake, is out for two to three weeks with a fractured toe. Brovsky got patched up and finished the game against the Whitecaps and then went for surgery. He trained this week in a face mask, although he had to clear it of fog with a towel at intervals. Coach Marco Schallibaum called Brovsky a warrior. That got no argument from Bernier. "It looks a bit awkward, but Jeb is a guy who is not going to quit," Bernier said. "You could see when he broke his nose he wanted to get the operation right away. "Some people would have missed three or four weeks and hes already available to play on Saturday. It might hinder him a bit, but not enough to affect his play. He may have to wipe the fog off on the sideline, like a hockey player." Schallibaum expects Camara to be ready, and Dennis Iapichino is available at left back. The Impact were on a 10-day break in their schedule, which was useful as midfielder Felipe Martins recovered from passing kidney stones. Schallibaum does not announce his starting 11, but from practice this week it appeared he would stick to his recent preference for a two-forward lineup, pairing Andrew Wenger with Di Vaio even though the two have shown no chemistry. Forward Daniele Paponi, Di Vaios former Bologna teammate, is out with a hamstring injury along with midfielders Andrea Pisanu (hamstring) and captain Davy Arnaud (concussion). The Union will have defender Jeff Parke, their off-season acquisition from Seattle, back after he missed three games with a sore hamstring. His return allowed them to trade defender Bakary Soumane to Chicago this week for a second round draft pick and allocation money. Up front, McInerney teams with veteran Sebastien Le Toux, who is back in Philadelphia after splitting last season between Vancouver and the New York Red Bulls. "Theyre a very solid team," Di Vaio said of the Union. "They won three games away, so that must help them here, in the head. "They have good strikers. Its not an easy game."

Edinburgh bounced back from last weeks disappointing defeat to Zebre with a 28-17 Guinness PRO12 victory over Ulster at BT Murrayfield.The hosts were evidently desperate to atone for the previous weeks shock defeat and by half-time had established a 21-3 advantage through tries from Villiame Mata and Damien Hoyland, a conversion from Jason Tovey and a penalties from Blair Kinghorn and Duncan Weir (2).Magnus Bradbury then crossed after the interval with Tovey adding a second conversion. Ruan Pienaar kicked a first-half penalty for Ulster before converting second-half tries from Aaron Cairns and Jacob Stockdale and adding a penalty.With two minutes on the clock, Tovey almost sidestepped his way through the Ulster defence and when he was thwarted, Sean Kennedy fed the ball back to Mata, who crashed through two tackles to touch down and Tovey converted.The hosts continued to dominate and claimed a second try of the evening after nine minutes. Mata was again involved and when he was foiled, Kinghorn was hauled down just short but Hoyland was alert to the opportunity and picked up to plunge over.Tovey failed with the conversion attempt, but the momentum remained with Edinburgh and Kinghorn added three more points with a sweetly struck long-range penalty in the 16th minute.Ulster had been infrequent visitors to the home half but with 24 minutes played they earned a penalty 30 metres out and Pienaar was on target to get them on the board.Weir, who had just come on as a temporary replacement for Tovey, responded almost immediately, rifling a penalty between the sticks from close range.?The replacements next involvement was to have a kick ccharged down.ddddddddddddBut fortunately Kinghorn raced back to avert the danger as the ball ricocheted over the Edinburgh line.Weir shrugged off that error to make another positive contribution when he added three more points to complete the first-half scoring.Ulster made a lively start to the second period but handling errors and one bone-juddering tackle by Kinghorn prevented the visitors from capitalising on their spell in charge.And the home side capitalised on that failure seven minutes into the half when Cornell Du Preez broke from a scrum inside the Edinburgh half and fed Kennedy.He in turn released Mike Allen whose pass set Bradbury free for an impressive try which Tovey converted. Ulster responded with a powerful surge from Tommy Bowe who was held up over the line by Du Preez.The visitors thought they had clawed back five points when Charles Piatau raced onto a clever chip by Pienaar. However, to the displeasure of the Irish contingent in the 5,336 crowd, the referee ruled that he had not controlled the ball as he touched down.Edinburgh defended well for the next 10 minutes but their luck eventually ran out when Paul Marshall chipped ahead and Cairns out-muscled Tovey to pluck the ball out of the air and touch down. Pienaars conversion cut the deficit to 18 points.?The Irishmen gave themselves a glimmer of hope -- at least of a four-try bonus if not a win -- with eight minutes to play when Stockdale raced onto a flip pass from Rob Herring and darted in for a try which Pienaar again converted.
