With the Riverhounds SC on the verge of a playoff trip to Louisville City FC, Pittsburgh Soccer Now welcomes outside back Jordan Dover to talk about the single-elimination matchup.

Jordan and I discussed the Hounds’ late-season form, the odd COVID-19 season at large, his progression as a player in four years under coach Bob Lilley, and what he thinks of fellow Canadian wingback Ryan James’ breakout.

Finally, our conversation turned to what it will take to beat Louisville and gain some revenge for last October’s postseason loss to the always-formidable Boys in Purple.
