Rayo OKC Targets Third Win Against A Florida Side In Matchup With Rowdies

Three-time Premier League Champion Joe Cole could make his debut for the Rowdies
NASL Staff | May 13, 2016

Idle last week, the Tampa Bay Rowdies will have a buzz about them at Al Lang Stadium this weekend after introducing three-time Barclays Premier League Champion Joe Cole to the team on Wednesday. Tampa Bay (2W-2D-1L, 8 points) won its last game over rival Fort Lauderdale, 1-0, on Neill Collins' headed goal. The Rowdies, though, will need to be wary of their next opponent's attack as upstart Rayo OKC continues to find ways to score, having only been shut out once – the first game in club history – in its first five matches.

Rayo OKC (2-1-2, 7) heads into the clash with Tampa Bay brimming with confidence, as the Sunshine State has been kind to the expansion side in recent weeks. In fact, both of the club's wins have come on the road against Florida sides. Robbie Findley scored the game-winner - his second goal of the year - against Jacksonville Armada FC in a 1-0 victory the last time out. Brazilian defender Michel, who was deployed in a more advanced position last game, continues to be a standout performer, adding an assist last game to his team-leading tally of three goals.
