The Philadelphia Union are looking to get their fourth victory in five games when they host the New England Revolution Saturday night. The revs come to Chester seeking their second straight road win. The U are also looking for their second straight win, after a convincing win 3-0 win in Harrison, NJ last week.
That 3-0 win was all off the backs of the Union’s Homegrown players, showing how the U has one of the league’s best Academy programs. Both Brenden Aaronson and Matt Real scored a goal in that game. Aaronson’s 22-yard strike was something that stood up for Jim Curtin. This is what Curtin had to say after the game about Aaronson’s finish, “I was mad at him because he was in that green zone a couple times earlier and his first touch let him down. But overall now to finish that one from distance is something we’re proud of and all the hard work he’s put in in front of goal is paying off for him and our team. He deserves the credit there.”
A big issue the Union are facing for tonight’s matchup, the injury bug. As detailed in this report, the U have five players listed as questionable for tonight’s matchup. According to the injury report most of the players are dealing with an “undisclosed injury.” Those players are Ilsinho, Kai Wagner, Warren Creavalle and Jack Elliott. Sergio Santos is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. The only player that definitely will not be playing is Aurelien Colin, who is still out with a leg injury. On the Revolution’s side they will be without two midfielders, Luis Caicedo and Charles Gil.
Yellow card suspension watch continues tonight as well. Union Midfielders Jose Martinez and Jamiro Monteiro will serve a one match suspension “If” they receive a yellow card during tonight’s game.
