Result: Chicago secure comeback win
Goals from Dilly Duka and Mike Magee help Chicago Fire come from behind to beat Columbus Crew in their MLS clash.

Chicago Fire came from behind to earn a 2-1 away win against Columbus Crew in their MLS Eastern Conference clash.

The Crew got off to the perfect start in the sixth minute when they were awarded a penalty after Sean Johnson brought down Dominic Oduro. Federico Higuain made no mistake in dispatching the spot kick into the bottom corner.

Chicago were nearly level when Dilly Duka picked up the ball in midfield and drove at the Columbus defence, but his low effort from the edge of the area was well saved by Andy Gruenebaum.

After the break, the Fire did find an equaliser as Joel Lindpere raided down the left and lifted a cross to the back post where Duka was unmarked and was left with a simple finish.

Minutes later Chicago took the lead when Lindpere did well again as he hit a pinpoint cross into the penalty area and Mike Magee latched onto the ball and headed it past Gruenebaum.

Higuain almost got the Crew back into the game as he dribbled through several of the visitors' defenders before firing a low shot at goal, which Johnson did well to beat away.

Columbus continued to push and went close again but Bernardo Anor's right-footed volley went just the wrong side of the post as Chicago held out for the win.
