INSIDE THE 18: Caden Clark Makes Second MLS Start on Sunday Night


Caden Clark, the 17-year-old midfielder, is back in the Starting XI on Sunday night as the New York Red Bulls face off against Orlando City SC at Red Bull Arena.

Clark will be joined in the attack by Florian Valot, Danny Royer and Tom Barlow.

Clark became the youngest player to score two MLS goals in his first two games, with goals against Atlanta United FC and Toronto FC in the previous pair of matches.

Captain Sean Davis and Marc Rzatkowski will anchor the defensive midfield.

The back line of Jason Pendant, Amro Tarek, Tim Parker and Kyle Duncan will look for their second clean sheet in three matches - and look to keep the opponent off the scoresheet from the run of play in their third-straight game.

Ryan Meara will start in goal.

Interim Head Coach Bradley Carnell will have a full bench, with Jared Stroud, Samuel Tetteh, Sean Nealis, Dru Yearwood, Omir Fernandez, Aaron Long, Mandela Egbo and Brian White available. David Jensen will serve as the backup goalkeeper.

Coverage on MSG begins at 6:30 p.m. ET with the Red Bulls Pregame show. Steve Cangialosi will have the primary play-by-play responsibilities and will be alongside Shep Messing and Michelle Gingras.

New York Red Bulls Radio begins at 6 p.m. EST with Countdown to Kickoff, presented by Honda, hosted by Matt Harmon and Steve Jolley. Ernesto Motta will carry the Spanish play-by-play responsibilities, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
