Having already won the first match between the teams this season in Pittsburgh, the Riverhounds are now on the verge of a great opportunity on Wednesday to reclaim the Keystone Derby Cup against in-state rivals Harrisburg in the third season that the teams are competing for the honor to lift the trophy.
Most importantly, the Hounds will look to rebound after a rough week in which they were defeated in the U.S. Open Cup by a lower division team, 3-1, and took a hard-fought loss to Louisville City FC, who surged past them in the USL’s Eastern Conference standings.

You can find my complete pregame notes and live file to follow during the game on DK Pittsburgh Sports.
