The Charlotte Independence make the trip north of the border for a two game Canadian road trip with games against FC Montreal and Toronto FC II. Both of these games are winnable and for the Independence these are games that they will need to win if they want a realistic shot at making the playoffs.

What to Watch For
1) The Time Is Now: The Independence have yet to win a road match this season and with 5 of their next 7 away from home, they really need this one against FC Montreal. Pick up a win and they are tied on points for the sixth and final playoff spot.
2) Games In Hand: Charlotte still has seven games left on their schedule and that is at least two games more than everyone else. They control their destiny and taking advantage of those games is the way they make the playoffs. Can they do it? It has to start tonight in Montreal.
