Top three teams separated by one point

[NASL SCHEDULE: Week 11] Just four match days remain in the NASL spring season that wraps up July 4 -- there are no playoffs -- and only one point separates the top three teams: the Carolina RailHawks, Atlanta Silverbacks and Minnesota United FC.

There have been six changes in leadership in 10 weeks with current leader Carolina on top for half that time.

Carolina, which moved into the quarterfinals of the Open Cup with a 3-1 win over MLS's Chivas USA, is off until Sunday when it plays at FC Edmonton.

Atlanta is also on the road at Fort Lauderdale.
"Looking at our schedule, we think Saturday is just a must-win game," said Silverbacks defender Mark Bloom. "We're entering this game with the same mindset we've had all year. We absolutely need to win, and if we continue to believe in each other, we come out just fine."
The defending champion Tampa Bay Rowdies are in fourth place and face a must-win game Saturday when they return home from their Open Cup match at Portland and host the San Antonio Scorpions.
