The Philadelphia Union will look to snap a three-game losing streak Saturday night, as they face FC Dallas – also losers of three straight.
The Philadelphia Union will take on the FC Dallas on Saturday night, with neither team playing particularly well. After nine games, the Union have only two wins, and sit second-to-last in the Eastern Conference standings. Meanwhile, FC Dallas has only three wins in 12 games – sixth in the West.
Both teams come into Saturday's action riding three-game losing streaks.
"It's a tricky game," said coach Peter Nowak, whose opposition is also on a three-game losing swing. "[FC Dallas] had a couple guys with suspensions and they need points -- just like us. It's going to be an interesting game. It'll be physical, because that's how they play at home, and they are trying to find a recipe for success. With [Daniel] Hernandez and [Brek] Shea, they try to find a way to win the games. We need to be ready for that."
The game is scheduled for 8:30 EST.
