Heading into Saturday, the Hounds sit 11th and one point out of playoff position in the East. They will begin a stretch of four straight games against teams in the top-eight of the table and, they’ve held their own (3-4) against teams with a winning record. The Hounds have been a tough team to beat on the road in eight games (2-2-4) this season.
The Hounds will have to face a team on a tear.  Bethlehem Steel FC are making a case of being the best MLS affiliated team in USL this season, especially in the past month, as they currently ride a seven game unbeaten streak as they take on the Hounds on Saturday at Lehigh University.
