WHAT TO WATCH FOR
This weekend the Greenville Triumph will compete against One Knoxville in a pivotal road match that has the potential to alter playoff contention across the league. Greenville will line up at 7:30 PM ET for the first time in Regal Soccer Stadium at the University of Tennessee. Both clubs have claimed wins in this trilogy, with the series victor to be decided in the final scheduled matchup on Saturday.
KNOX: Derek Waldeck, defender: All too familiar with the Greenville brand, Waldeck will be one of the few players out of Saturday’s match. The defender earned two yellow cards and consequentially a red card against Forward Madison last week. Waldeck has started every match for One Knox this season and tallied five assists. His presence will be missed as Knoxville attempts to extend its five-match unbeaten streak.
GVL: Leo Castro, forward: Greenville’s newest offensive addition has made a statement in his first season. Castro remains the leading score for Greenville with a solid 10 goals, including two against Knoxville. As the Triumph look to get back on track, they’ll need the goal scorer have a standout performance to solidify Greenville’s position in the table.
NEWS AND NOTES
Greenville dropped down to sixth in the League One table after a 2-0 defeat to NCFC. GTSC sits just one point above the playoff cut line and ahead of its week 27 opponent, Knoxville. GTSC has a match in hand on fourth-place Charlotte, whom they trail by three points. If Forward Madison continues their trend downward, the winner of Saturday’s match could jump as high as fifth seed.
