MATCH DAY INFO
Ottawa Fury FC @ Indy Eleven
Kickoff: Wednesday, September 11 – 7:00 p.m. – Lucas Oil Stadium
After losing their last three games, Ottawa Fury FC will be looking to bounce back in a big way and get back into the win column, in what will be the final game of a three-game road trip for Ottawa against the Indy Eleven at Lucas Oil Stadium. Having been holding on to 8th place for the past few weeks, Nikola Popovic’s squad will look to strengthen their position in the Eastern Conference with a big three points on the road, to then come back home to their beloved fans once again.
Indy has been one of the Championship’s stronger sides this season, with a record of 15W-5D-5L, standing in 4th place of the Eastern Conference table. Led offensively by Tyler Pasher, who is tied for sixth in the USL for goals with 10, the Indy Eleven pride themselves in allowing few many goals. They lead the entire USL for the fewest amount of goals scored against, with only 19.
SCOUTING INDY ELEVEN:
Indy Eleven did well to reach the USL Cup Playoffs in its first season in the league a year ago all things considered, with Head Coach Martin Rennie assembling a squad in double-quick time that proved competitive, if not elite. This offseason the club was one of the splashiest player in the market, bringing on board additional talent that projects to make Indy a strong contender to upend the back-to-back USL Cup champion and its rival in the Louisville-Indianapolis Proximity Association Football Contest (LIPAFC). The arrival of the Championship’s all-time leading scorer in Dane Kelly will bolster the Eleven’s attack, while 2018 Championship Golden Glove Evan Newton arrives to take over between the stick after featuring for FC Cincinnati a season ago.
The club’s returning talent is also plentiful with All-League Second Team selection Ayoze Garcia back in defense alongside Karl Ouimette and Tyler Pasher. But it’s the newcomers like Newton’s former FCC teammates Tyler Gibson, Kenney Walker and Paddy Barrett that appear set to make a difference for the Eleven this year as they go in pursuit of silverware.
