New York Red Bulls II head to Dillon Stadium for first time this season to take on Hartford Athletic
Here are the Three Keys to the Game:
With Wallis Lapsley receiving a red card in the previous match, he will be suspended for the match against Hartford Athletic. Most likely, academy graduate Alex Bobocea will receive his first professional start. Bobocea made his professional debut against Loudoun United FC on Wednesday night and recorded four saves in his debut.
Lacava Keeps Going
In only six appearances, forward Jake Lacava has three assists this season and has looked dangerous in the attack. He has created six chances on the season, which puts him in third place on the team. The new signing will look to continue his run of good form in Hartford. With only 258 minutes played, Lacava continues to look dangerous in the attack.
With three consecutive losses, NYRB II will look to get back to winning ways this Saturday against Hartford. Despite losing to them earlier in the year, NYRB II still holds a 2-1-0 series lead, which includes a 5-1 win at Dillon Stadium last season. NYRB II still sit in third place of Group F and a win against Hartford would put them in a good spot in the overall standings.
