KEY STORYLINES

Having clinched a playoff spot earlier this week, the Hounds now shift their focus to locking up a home postseason date at Highmark Stadium for the first time in franchise history. Currently second in the East, Pittsburgh can clinch a home playoff game with a win or a loss/tie from Indy Eleven against FC Cincinnati.

Despite its record, Charlotte will present a formidable foe, especially at home, as the club has conceded defeat only three times in 16 games this season at Matthews. Additionally, the Independence have had the Hounds’ number since joining the league in 2015, holding a 5-0-2 record all-time in head-to-head contests.
