First team coach Chris, fresh from training at the George Washington University on Monday night, said the lads were aiming to put on a good show against the Major Soccer League outfit at the famous RFK Stadium.
"The boys are looking forward to it," said Chris. "They gave us a tough time at White Hart Lane in the Tribute match back in October and although we had a mixed side out on the night, they looked a good team on the night.
"I think it will be better for us that we're going into this game knowing that we're up against very good opposition.
"Everyone knows the last couple of weeks to the season back home were very, very difficult.
"This is a PR exercise and an opportunity to see if we can gain some support out here and there is no better way to do that than putting on a good show."
Chris Hughton expects a tough test against DC United on Wednesday night - but he prefers it that way.
