The Strikers could not have a tougher test, taking on league leaders the Carolina RailHawks at Lockhart Stadium on Friday night at 7.30pm.
“Fort Lauderdale has gotten two good results that have put them in the thick of the Fall Season race,” said RailHawks coach Colin Clarke. “We are expecting another tough match on the road and will have to be ready to play from the opening whistle.”
The San Antonio Scorpions welcome Minnesota United to Toyota Field with interim coach Alen Marcina aiming to lead the hosts to their first three points of the fall campaign. The game will air live on MeTV-KSAT 12.2, on www.NASL.com/liveand on 102.3 FM San Antonio (Spanish language) and Radio Formula 1500 AM Boerne.
“It’s going to be a battle, it’s going to be an exciting game for the fans, and I am looking forward to it and I know the team is as well,” said Scorpions interim coach Alen Marcina. “They've invested a lot, so results are expected on their end too.”
Only a single point separates the third placed Tampa Bay Rowdies and fifth placed Atlanta Silverbacks who meet at Silverbacks Park in Atlanta at 7.30pm on Saturday live on NASL.com in a game that will also air in Spanish language on WUVM-TV Azteca Atlanta on Sunday at 10:30 am ET.
“Atlanta is coming off a NASL Spring Season Championship, proving that they are a skillful squad that can beat any team in this league,” said Rowdies coach Ricky Hill. “For some reason we have been very successful on the road and it will be very important to come away with a good result on Saturday.”
The action concludes on Sunday at 4pm ET when the second placed New York Cosmos, who have won twice at home, but have only taken one point from two road games, travel to Canada to take on FC Edmonton.
“Edmonton presents an interesting challenge for us this weekend,” said Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese. “We had a very good win on Saturday, but we have to step right back into training and do the right things again this week. I keep saying it, but every weekend is like a final for us. This will be a good trip for our team.”
The game will be webcast on NASL.com/live outside of Canada onlyand airs nationally in Canada on Rogers Sportnet 360 and Radio Team 1260 AM.
