Looking to pull away from its three-way tie for first in the 2014 NASL Fall Standings, San Antonio Scorpions welcome Carolina RailHawks at Toyota Field for Wednesday Night Fútbol.  San Antonio is coming off a 2-0 home victory over Fort Lauderdale Strikers last weekend, while Carolina dropped its third consecutive overall league match when it lost 1-0 on the road to the NASL Spring Champion Minnesota United FC. Scorpions have won four of five encounters against the RailHawks in San Antonio, including the last meeting this past Spring, 2-0.  Forwards Danny Barrera, Eric Hassli and Tomasz Zahorski all scored for San Antonio in the victory.

Coaches quotes:

“On the back of such a thrilling game on Saturday, we're aware of the task we face with an organized, disciplined, Carolina side – particularly with us having a shorter rest break. However, we are fortunate to be playing in front of our home supporters, so we look to extending our current run of form." – Scorpions coach Alen Marcina

“I thought we did very well in Minnesota, but we weren’t lucky enough to get something from the game, so we just have to build from that to win in San Antonio.” – RailHawks coach Colin Clarke
