What to Watch For
1) Tired Legs: Both Charlotte and Wilmington will have some tired legs after playing on Thursday in Wilmington. The Independence will need to look at their squad depth in the hopes of gathering another victory. The Hammerheads are certainly struggling this year, but this should be a winnable game for Charlotte.
2) Going All Out: There are just four games left in the regular season and despite the short rest for Charlotte, they need to go all out in this one. Another victory and they will be in the drivers seat for a spot in the top six in the Eastern Conference. But suffer a let down, and Charlotte is back into the game of score board watching.
