Notes and Quotes:

Tampa Bay goalkeeper Evan Louro is the NYRB II all-time leader in goalkeeper wins and saves.

Tampa Bay: As the some injured Rowdies move closer to their return, others move into the injured column themselves. Forward Lucky Mkosana now has two appearances off the bench under his belt after missing the first three months of the season. Forwards Steevan Dos Santos and Juan Tejada have progressed well in their respective recoveries and could be in line to return this month. However, Matt Srbely and Dayonn Harris have both been sidelined in recent weeks with their own knocks. Srbely could be in line for minutes this weekend, but it would still be in a limited capacity, meaning other players will need to continue to carry the load this Friday.

“We have definitely been poorer on the road this year than we ever have. I don’t see so much the problem as us being on the road, the problem right now is we’ve just not performed. On the road you just have to have this stoic, resolute
mentality that we’ve probably missed just slightly because maybe we’ve just been used to being dominant. Playing all those home games, (to start the season) you’re used to dominating and playing your way. It takes away some being on the road, knowing that you have to adapt and you have to be flexible and hang in there sometimes. That’s something we need to get back to and we will.” — Tampa Bay Rowdies Head Coach Neill Collins

“Of course when we don’t have the results we want, we’re mad and we’re angry, but we’re doing the right things. We always work hard in training. Everyone has a good mentality. We know we’re going to turn this thing around and get better. That’s all our focus right now, to keep doing what we’re doing and push even more to get better each day.”” — Tampa Bay Rowdies midfielder Yann Ekra
