The game is at 7:30 p.m. at Lockhart Stadium.
“It's going to be a tough game for us,” said Strikers head coach Günter Kronsteiner.
“I wish we had more time to prepare before we face the best team in the league.
But our guys have been working hard and with the two wins we had on the road,
their confidence has been increasing.”

Saturday, August 24.
A pair of FC Dallas players on loan have had a huge impact on the Strikers. Goalkeeper Richard Sanchez got the shutout against Atlanta, earning him NASL Player of the
Week honors. Sanchez is on loan from FC Dallas of MLS has been solid
for the Strikers on goal this season. His Dallas teammate, Bradlee
Baladez, scored on a header off a cross from Ivan Guerrero.
