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.
