Striker Danny Koevermans will likely come off the bench this weekend in his return from a 10-month absence due to a knee injury.
The Dutch forward is expected to see action Saturday when Toronto FC (1-7-4) hosts the Philadelphia Union (5-5-3).
Koevermans has been sidelined since tearing up his knee last July 14 in New England. TFC has gone 2-17-8 in MLS play in his absence.
Going into Saturday's game, Toronto has lost five straight in league play and is winless in 10.
Philadelphia is coming off a 5-3 loss in Montreal.
