Nashville SC and FC Dallas will look to build on wins when the sides square off on Tuesday in their first match ever on Nashville's home pitch in a key late season, interconference dustup. Nashville already owns a win and a draw against FCD in its inaugural season, with both of those matches in north Texas in August. Both teams earned much-needed victories last Wednesday, with Nashville beating Houston on the road 3-1 and FC Dallas holding off Sporting Kansas City 1-0 at home.
I think that shows you how much the academies have come along and how much more investment there is and belief and conviction and getting young players opportunities and putting them in young pre-professional environments. The addition of second teams has helped players be ready for the first team. It's fantastic, I'm really proud to see those steps.
There were literally five votes last Monday in my Workhorse poll, and with two votes, no one claimed the Workhorse after the debacle and disappointment of that Houston match. Good. Back on Track After a poor run of play, FC Dallas finally found a gritty three points at home against Sporting Kansas City.
