[NASL PREVIEW: Week 3] The Carolina RailHawks and New York Cosmos, two of the four teams unbeaten and tied for the NASL lead after two games in the fall season, meet for the first time Saturday at WakeMed Soccer Park.

"Carolina is a very difficult team," said Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese. "They're one of the best in the league and have proven very tough to beat. Nevertheless, we're going to take this game, like all our games, as a final. We are preparing in every area of our team, not just one single focus, that will help us bring back three points to New York."
 
The Tampa Bay Rowdies, the third unbeaten team, travel to play Minnesota United FC, which is coming off a  3-1 win on the road in Fort Lauderdale.
 
"We had a nice road win and now we have to carry that momentum into this weekend," said Minnesota coach Manny Lagos. "We haven't played great at home in the past couple months and so we have to take the field and embrace the challenge and face a strong Tampa Bay club."

On Sunday, FC Edmonton welcomes spring season champion Atlanta Silverbacks, the fourth unbeaten team.
