Charlotte Independence vs Rochester Rhinos: How to Watch, Live Stream and More

Charlotte takes on the best in the East tonight at Ramblewood

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Independence are back in action tonight as they take on the USL leading Rochester Rhinos in a critical Eastern Conference clash.  The Independence are five points from a playoff spot in USL and a victory over the undefeated Rhinos will bring them much needed points as they try and make the playoffs in their run at them.

The Goal for Charlotte:  Three Points at Home

What to Watch For:

1) Stopping Rochester: It is crazy to think that over halfway through a season that a team still has not lost.  It is happening in USL right now as Rochester have yet to lose.  12-0-7 on the year and they will be looking to continue that streak.

2) That Being Said: Sure, Rochester has not lost this year, but the Independence were the only team to take points off them in Rochester.  It is going to be tough at Ramblewood tonight, but it is possible for Charlotte.  And if they want a shot at the playoffs, this is a game they need to win.
