The Kickers enter Friday’s match following a 4-1 win over Antigua Barracuda FC last week. Midfielder Joseph Ngwenya posted a first half hat trick and midfielder Nate Robinson contributed three assists before Luke Vercollone rounded out the scoreline early in the second half to carry the home side to a 4-0-2 record to start the season.
Meanwhile, the Blues are coming off a 10-day break after a dramatic 4-3 loss to Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy Reserves. Conceding four goals before the hour mark, the Blues rallied after an own goal in their favor with Shay Spitz and Allan Russell cutting the deficit minutes before the fulltime whistle.
This weekend, the Blues travel to Richmond for the first game of the 2013 home and away series, facing the Kickers for the fifth time in history. The two clubs last met on July 3, 2012 when the Kickers narrowly defeated the Blues 1-0 at City Stadium to draw the series record even at 1-1-2. Previously, the Blues edged the Kickers 2-1 in Richmond before the two clubs battled to back-to-back scoreless ties in Los Angeles to conclude the 2011 campaign.
