The Charlotte Independence hit the road for the second consecutive match as they head north to play the defending USL Champions Rochester Rhinos in a massive match for both clubs. The Independence are 5-2-1 (16 points, 2.0 PPG) while the Rhinos are playing very well and come in with a 4-1-1 record (13 points, 2.16 PPG). This one should be a fun to watch as both clubs look to be going for it
The Goal for Charlotte: grab a road result
What to Watch For
1) The Streak: after a slow start to the season, Charlotte has rattled off an undefeated streak of 5 matches including picking up four points on the road. This is a great start for Charlotte and it comes with good goal scoring and timely defending.
2) Defense in Rochester: the challenge for Charlotte tonight will be scoring goals. Rochester boasts the second stingiest defense in USL and give up less than a goal a game. This will be a great test for the Charlotte attack to see if they can break down Rochester and grab a result.
3) Colorado Rapids on Loan: Here are the stats for the Rapids players who are or have been on loan with Charlotte:
