The Tampa Bay Rowdies look to end their nine-game winless streak when they host Indy Eleven at Al Lang Stadium.  Indy, who is unbeaten in its last four matches, is coming off a 2-1 road victory over Ottawa Fury FC last Sunday, while Tampa Bay earned a 2-2 draw against the host New York Cosmos this past Saturday.  This is the third meeting between the two sides with the Rowdies winning the previous encounter, 2-1, on July 19 at IUPUI’s Michael A. Carroll Stadium.  Indy took the lead with a goal from midfielder Kléberson but tallies from forwards Georgi Hristov and Casey Townsend gave Tampa Bay the victory.

Coaches quotes:

“We want to give our fans a nice reward to end the season. We've been indifferent at home, at best, and disappointing for sure in not getting enough wins. Saturday is an opportunity to send the fans home happy and thank them for all the support they've given us despite where we've been in the standings." – Rowdies coach Ricky Hill

“With the way we've finished, nothing less than a win to close things out Saturday at Tampa Bay would be fitting for this group, in my mind. We've shown that we won't be afraid to come out and be aggressive on the road, and we'll bring that attitude to Tampa for the finale.” – Indy Eleven coach Juergen Sommer
