[NASL SCHEDULE: Week 9] Carolina, Tampa Bay and Minnesota United FC all have a chance to take over the NASL lead this weekend from the idle Atlanta Silverbacks, but they will have to win on the road to do it.

Carolina and Tampa Bay, who are coming off upsets of MLS in Open Cup action on Wednesday, play at Ft. Lauderdale and FC Edmonton, respectively.

"It is a quick turnaround for us with the U.S. Open Cup, but we look forward to getting back to league action against Fort Lauderdale," said RailHawks coach Colin Clarke. "This weekend is very important in the race for the spring championship, with only six points separating first from sixth."

Former North Carolina star Brian Shriver, who scored the second goal in the RailHawks' 2-0 win over the LA Galaxy, leads the NASL with five goals. Bulgarian Georgi Hristov, whose goal gave the Rowdies a 1-0 win over the Seattle Sounders, is tied for second with three other players with four goals.

Minnesota United FC  travels to San Antonio in this weekend's third game.
