Ottawa Fury FC (3W-1D-6L, 10 points) opened up a key three-game homestand on Wednesday with a clean sheet against a dangerous Miami FC side. Having been hampered with injuries of late, Fury FC will take some confidence from the midweek result, but head coach Paul Dalglish’s side will need to be a little more productive in the final third if it wants to secure three points against Spring Season Champion Indy Eleven on Sunday afternoon. Carl Haworth, who leads the team with seven goals, needs some help up front from the likes of midseason acquisitions Giuseppe Gentile and Danny Mwanga.

Indy has made a habit of scoring late to win games in 2016, and Ottawa knows that all too well having fallen victim to a stoppage-time goal against the Boys in Blue earlier this month. The Eleven (6-1-3, 19) got a taste of its own medicine last weekend when its opponent, the Carolina RailHawks, converted a penalty kick in the dying moments to snatch all three points. Despite the loss in Week 8, Indy has been strong all season long and currently sits just three points off the pace in the Fall Season Standings.
