Omir Fernandez is in the Starting XI, looking to build on his three goals in four matches, as New York Red Bulls take on FC Cincinnati at TQL Stadium on Saturday night.
Fernandez is joined in the attack by Frankie Amaya and Wiki Carmona. Patryk Klimala starts up top for RBNY.
Fernandez and forward Klimala combined for six of New York’s nine goals during September. The Red Bulls are unbeaten in their last four matches.
Sean Davis and Cristian Cásseres Jr. anchor the defensive midfield, while Andrew Gutman, Andrés Reyes, Sean Nealis and Tom Edwards start along the back line.
Davis made his 199th appearance in all competitions for the Red Bulls on Wednesday night. He is one match shy of becoming just the third player in franchise history to record 200 appearances across all competitions for the club. On Wednesday, he also moved into a tie with Dane Richards for fifth place in franchise history in MLS regular season games started (133).
Carlos Coronel starts in goal for New York.
Ryan Meara will serve as backup goalkeeper, while Tom Barlow, Caden Clark, Youba Diarra, Cameron Harper, Danny Royer, John Tolkin and Dru Yearwood are available off the bench.
Fábio and Lucas Monzón miss out due to injuries, while Kyle Duncan is suspended due to yellow card accumulation.
