Revolution midfielder Khano Smith believes he was unfairly singled out before being released as the New York Red Bulls slumped to a 5-19-6 record last season.

"I guess they made me a scapegoat," Smith said of the Red Bulls. "But if you look at that team, there was nobody there that was doing anything. So, to single me out like that -- I didn't feel like I had much of an opportunity, I only played the first eight games.

"(Former coach Juan Carlos) Osorio left three weeks later, so I felt if somebody else came I would be all right. I got along well with (interim coach) Richie Williams, so I think he would have given me a chance again, so I was a little disappointed. That just gives me motivation to get back."

Smith returned to action for the Revolution in the season-opener (1-0 loss at Los Angeles) and is expected to be available when they visit D.C. United Saturday night.

Revolution midfielder Shalrie Joseph (hip flexor) did not travel with the team.
