The Charlotte Independence return to Ramblewood Soccer Complex tonight as they look to return to their winning ways as they take on Toronto FC II. It has been nearly a month since Charlotte has picked up a league win and will be hoping to change that against a Toronto team that has won just twice this season.
The Goal for the Independence: Win at Home
What to Watch For
1) The Records: Charlotte has had a pretty good season overall with a 5-3-2 (17 points, 1,7 PPG) and is in playoff position. However, they have had a bit of a rough run in league as they are 0-1-2 (2 points, 0.66 PPG) in their last three and have picked up just two goals over that clip. They are in the playoffs now, but picking up a win tonight is needed to help right the ship.
2) The Bounce Back: Charlotte was in US Open Cup action on Wednesday and played very well for the first 90 minutes against Carolina RailHawks. However, the wheels fell off in Extra Time (they were down a man for about 60 minutes at that point) and got crushed 5-0. Despite it not meaning much (in the scheme of things) the Independence are going to want to come out in this one firing on all cylinders.
