Suddenly, the stretch run is upon the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, tied for first place in Group F at 5-3-1 and solidly in postseason position … but still with a few things on their to-do list before the playoffs.
With the season at a pivot point and nothing but group matches remaining, I hosted this Pittsburgh Sports Live roundtable discussion with John Krysinsky and local soccer journalist Matt Grubba, as we analyzed the club’s strengths and weaknesses with seven matches to play.
Is the efficient attack showing signs of adding a little more quantity to its quality finishing? Will defending continue to be a strength, as it usually is for a Bob Lilley-coached team? How will they fare the rest of the way, especially in the three matches remaining against group rival Hartford Athletic?
