Ottawa Fury FC helped end the Tampa Bay Rowdies' bid for the postseason last week with the 1-1 draw at Al Lang Stadium and now Fury FC (5W-7D-9L, 22 points Fall; 7-10-14, 31 Combined) is looking to wrap up the year with a win. The club will have to shake off a five-game winless streak that has included three losses. Canadian international Maxim Tissot scored his second goal of the year in the recent draw and has combined well in the attack with Ryan Williams, Giuseppe Gentile, and Carl Haworth.

Fort Lauderdale (6-5-10, 23 Fall; 10-8-13, Combined) was in the mix for the final spot in The Championship, the league's four-team postseason tournament, as the Fall Season wound down, but a 2-0 loss to Rayo OKC last Saturday ended the club's bid to return to postseason action for a third straight year. The Strikers now close out the year facing a side that they've had success against in 2016. Fort Lauderdale won the two previous meetings in 2016, earning a 2-1 road victory in the Fall Season and a 3-1 win earlier in the Fall Season, a game that was notable for Amauri's stunning bicycle kick.
