Harrisburg City Islanders FC travel to New York to take on the Rochester Rhinos at Sahlen’s Stadium at 6:05pm on Saturday, April 30.

City FC appealed captain Bobby Warshaw’s red card from Monday night. Unfortunately for Harrisburg, the USL Disciplinary Committee upheld the red card and Warshaw’s suspension for Saturday night. The game may provide the opportunity to try a different lineup or a Mouhamed Dabo and Joshua Hughes partnership in central midfield.

The defending champions started the 2016 season with three away games where the Rhinos went 1-1-1 (W-L-T). On Saturday April 23, Rochester returned home and defeated rival FC Montreal 2-1 thanks to a brace from forward Christian Volesky.

Rochester will be without forward Steevan dos Santos who is serving the second of his two-game suspension for violent conduct in the Rhinos' scoreless draw against the New York Red Bulls II on April 17.
