Oklahoma City Energy FC last match report (v Phoenix Rising):

Oklahoma City Energy FC played an impressive match against Phoenix Rising in the midweek game of the week earlier this week. It was a strong second half performance from the Energy, scoring two of their goals as they were the stronger side throughout the match.

In the latter stages Oklahoma City Energy FC tired and left the door open for Phoenix Rising to get the bulk of the possession. Despite that Oklahoma City Energy FC managed to hold off Phoenix’s late charge in the match to seal a win that gave them plenty of hope.

Statistical Note: Should San Antonio FC win the match it will be the United Soccer League (USL) record road winning streak for a single season, and equalize the record for being spread over multiple seasons.

Key to the Match: Replacing Greg Cochrane will be crucial for San Antonio FC in this match, as they deal with the absence of a vital defender due to his red card last week. When the red card happened San Antonio FC had already used all three substitutions so there was not much of a chance to view how they will play without him. The San Antonio FC defense has been so consistent and injury free it is hard to predict who will come in for Cochrane, one likely option is Cyprian Hedrick who could play in the position and has strong experience at this level. In his appearance for San Antonio FC this year he has managed to perform well.
