Teetering on the edge of results, Hounds seek first win since June

Teetering on the edge of results, Hounds seek first win since June

Before the season began, the Riverhounds produced a line of T-shirts featuring a picture of Dave Brandt, with the words ‘Talk is Cheap’ printed on the front of the shirt, illustrating the coach’s no-nonsense approach.

As we reach August, in the midst of Brandt’s first full season with the team, the Hounds are reaching a critical juncture. July wasn’t very kind to Brandt’s squad, as they stumbled through six games without a win, including four consecutive draws booked-ended by a pair of one-sided losses.
After the latest defeat — 2-0 at Tampa Bay on Saturday – Brandt gave a number reasons why his team continues to come up short, and a step behind in the USL’s Eastern Conference playoff race.

“We’re in Step 2 in a three-step process,” Brandt explained after the game. “I’ve been here a year, and I came here and this team was really struggling. We’ve had a lot of draws and been on edge of a lot of results, except for two – here and Louisville City —  as we were more out of those games than we would like. Otherwise, we have to watch the mistakes in the back, and put in the chances we have.”
