NYRB II Face Penn FC With Playoffs In Sight

HARRISON, N.J. (October 8, 2018) – New York Red Bulls II (11-8-13, 46 points) cap their four-game road trip on Tuesday, at FNB Field, against Penn FC (9-14-9, 36 points). Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. ET and can be seen live on ESPN+.

With just two matches left in the USL regular season and in the thick of the USL Playoffs race, NYRB II face a Penn FC side that has already been eliminated from postseason contention entering Tuesday’s match.

Coming off a 2-1 road victory at North Carolina FC on Saturday, New York climbed back into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

NYRB II can clinch a playoff berth for a fourth consecutive season with a win, coupled with a North Carolina loss at Louisville City FC.

Both sides have met once previous in 2018 with NYRB II winning 2-1 at MSU Soccer Park back in early August. Andrew Tinari and Tom Barlow both notched goals on the day.

Following Tuesday’s match, NYRB II return home for their regular season finale against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on Sunday with kickoff set for 5 p.m. ET.
