The Philadelphia Union will be looking for their second consecutive victory when they make their inaugural trip to FC Cincinnati on Saturday night.
The Union won for the first time this season with a 3-0 shutout of the visiting Columbus Crew last Saturday. David Accam scored two goals for the Union, who improved to 1-2-1.
Accam's performance was especially noteworthy considering he had just learned of the death of his father shortly before the game.
"We're all rooting for David. He's gone through a lot on the field, off the field, injuries, things he can control, things he can't control," Union head coach Jim Curtin told reporters after the game. "So for him to have a performance like tonight when we really needed it as a team was big time. He really stepped up."
Philadelphia will also receive a major boost against FC Cincinnati with the return of midfielder Marco Fabian from a one-game suspension.
The Union are 0-1-1 on the road this season.
Despite playing in their inaugural season, expansion FC Cincinnati will be looking to push their unbeaten streak to four.
FC Cincinnati (2-1-1) last managed a stirring 2-0 victory over the host New England Revolution on Sunday. Kenny Saief and Kekuta Manneh each had one goal and one assist in the clean sheet.
If FC Cincinnati can earn three points against the Union, they'll have compiled 10 points through the first five games. That would be a Major League Soccer record for an expansion franchise.
"We're big-time exceeding expectations, but we'll take it," FC Cincinnati head coach Alan Koch said after their victory over New England. "We've said this since the very beginning: we're going to go every single game, give everything we can and try to get three points. If you'd have said to me we'll start the season off with four games and having these particular four games that we have and we'll have, what, seven points? I'd had say you're crazy. Credit to the players. Full credit to the staff."
