New York Red Bulls II travels to face Hartford Athletic on Saturday, May 14, at Trinity Health Stadium.
After tallying a career-high four saves in New York’s last match, Giannis Nikopolidis will make his second-straight start in net.
Juan Castillo, Lamine Conte, and Christopher Cragwell will anchor the backline. Castillo will wear the captain’s armband again after earning his first match with it against Sacramento.
Curtis Ofori and O’Vonte Mullings will likely serve as wingbacks.
In what has been a consistent pairing this season, Steven Sserwadda and Sam Williams will make up the defensive midfield.
Going forward, New York will go with the trio of Jonathan Filipe, Jordan Adebayo-Smith, and Jeremy Rafanello.
Derrek Chan will serve as the backup goalkeeper for Red Bulls II tonight. The rest of the bench consists of Daniel De Leon, Paul Smajlaj, Michael Knapp, Jack Casey, Wiki Carmona, and Illia Tyrkus.
Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET, with coverage on ESPN+.
