HARRISON, N.J. – Red Bulls II continue their three-game homestand, this time back at MSU Soccer Park at Montclair State University Saturday as they take on United Soccer League newcomer Ottawa Fury FC at 4 p.m.
The game will be the first meeting between the two sides. Ottawa serves as the USL affiliate to the Montreal Impact (Major League Soccer).
NYRB II have two-game skid, falling to Charlotte Independence and LA Galaxy II last week.
Despite the two defeats, 2016 USL rookie of the year Brandon Allen notched another goal off a Florian Valot assist bringing his total to five this season. That puts him in a tie for fourth place amidst the USL leaderboard along with teammate Vincent Bezecourt.
Ottawa is on a four-game winless streak with its last victory coming more than a month ago on the road at Richmond Kickers April 15.
The team’s most recent defeat saw them drop a 1-0 result at TD Place to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds last Saturday.
Fury FC has scored five goals by as many players, making Saturday a match where Ottawa will look to push numbers forward.
Red Bulls II will look to combat their approach and maintain their perfect record at MSU Soccer Park this season (3-0-0) outscoring their opponents, 9-3.
