Game: Toronto FC II at City Islanders FC

Time: 7:00 PM

City Islanders FC (3-5-1) will host Toronto FC II (2-5-2) at Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster, PA on Tuesday at 7:00pm in their second match in three days.

After beating Bethlehem Steel FC 3-1 on Sunday with a rotated roster, the City Islanders will again look to an alternate lineup to compensate for the short turnaround between games.

Toronto FC II are also playing with short rest. The Reds lost to the Riverhounds 1-2 in Pittsburgh on Saturday evening, giving the Hounds their first win of the 2016 season. TFC have only won once in their last seven games and have conceded 11 goals in that slump.

Despite the poor run of form, CIFC will have their work cut out for them on Tuesday. The Reds have a young and athletic squad including Raheem Edwards, a quick midfielder who has scored four goals so far this season. With tired legs, CIFC may struggle to keep up with an athletic TFC offense.

The forecast for kickoff is 76 degrees and partly cloudy with a 0% chance of precipitation.
