HARRISON, N.J. (June 19, 2015) - The New York Red Bulls are set to take on Western Conference power Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday night at Red Bull Arena.
New York returns to league action after defeating Atlanta Silverbacks FC on Tuesday in a fourth-round match of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Lloyd Sam scored the eventual game-winner in the seventh minute, while Ronald Zubar and Sean Davis each scored their first goals for New York.
In its last league outing, New York's losing streak was extended to three with a 4-2 loss at Houston. Mike Grella gave the side an early lead but Houston struck four times in the second half - including two goals off of deflections - in the second half. 18-year-old Cameroonian Anatole Abang came off the bench and got his first professional goal for New York.
Vancouver will see its first game action since June 6, when the side claimed a 1-0 road victory over the LA Galaxy, ending LA's 29-match home unbeaten streak. Kekuta Manneh scored the goal - his second game-winner of the season. Octavio Rivero, who was awarded an assist on the play, leads the team in goals this season with six.
David Ousted has been outstanding for Vancouver in goal, making 41 saves while recording seven shutouts. His 0.94 goals against average is second to only Seattle's Stefan Frei.
Kickoff on Saturday is set for 7 p.m., with coverage on MSG beginning at 6:30 p.m. with Red Bulls Game Night.
