June 8, 2014 – New York Cosmos vs Ottawa Fury FC – Preview
The Cosmos will be trying to sneak off with the Spring Season title at home against the Fury, as, according to NASL, “(the) Cosmos can claim the Spring Title with a win over Fury FC, but only if Minnesota lose to Tampa Bay and San Antonio lose/tie or win and do not turn around the goal differential deficit.” According to OFFC, “the New York Cosmos come into Sunday’s match unbeaten in their last 4 (3-1-0) where they have outscored their opposition 8-1,” while midfielder Marcos Senna is doubtful for Sunday’s match.
For the Fury, the morale of the club and the supporters are at a big high after that last minute snatch of a victory versus our Canadian rivals, and it would be great to finish off with a positive result to look forward to the summer break and to the Fall Season, with an eye out on the overall yearly table for the playoff spots. Omar Jarun has returned from his international duty, where he helped Palestine clinch the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup, though Nicki Paterson will once again sit out this game.
The players will go on a 1-week break after the match, according to Chris Hofley, and then will be back in Ottawa for training and, I’m sure, for some rowdy-ass World Cup viewing parties.
Out: Paterson (injury), Ubiparipovic (injury)
