[NASL PREVIEW: Week 2] The Tampa Bay Rowdies, who opened the NASL fall campaign with a wild 7-4 win at San Antonio, hope they have a few more goals left in their arsenal when they welcome the New York Cosmos at Al Lang Stadium on Saturday.
 
The Rowdies rebounded from conceding three goals inside the opening 18 minutes to lead 4-3 by halftime and then add three more goals against the Scorpions.

Tampa Bay boasted the best away record during the spring season (4-1-1) but was only 1-3-2 at home during the first half of the season.
 
"We hope to come out on Saturday and really put on a great show for our fans, who I know will rally behind us the full 90 minutes," said Rowdies coach Ricky Hill. "To win, we can't concede as many goals as we did against San Antonio and I have made that clear to the players."
 
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Silverbacks play their first league game at home since winning the spring title with a 3-0 win at Minnesota on the final day of the first half when they host the Carolina RailHawks.

Both clubs claimed narrow 1-0 victories to open fall play.
 
"They're a team that we need to be very aware of because it is the same team we beat at home last season, and it wasn't easy," said Silverbacks coach Brian Haynes. "They're the second best team in the league and we can't take them for granted.  We need to make sure that we bring our best game against them." 

-- FC Edmonton acquired forward Corey Hertzog on loan from MLS's Vancouver Whitecaps for the remainder of the 2013 campaign.
