[NASL PREVIEW: Week 6] The first-place Carolina RailHawks head to Tampa Bay to face the unbeaten Rowdies, while the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers could take over first place if they beat the winless San Antonio Scorpions at home and the RailHawks slip up.

Carolina suffered its first loss of the season when it fell to Ft. Lauderdale, 1-0, last Saturday.

"Coming off a disappointing result over the weekend, we need to continue our strong week of training and be ready to play from the opening whistle," said RailHawks coach Colin Clarke.  "The first goal is going to be important."

Guenter Kronsteiner
has turned around the fortunes of the Strikers, who finished last in the spring season but are sitting in second place on nine points with three straight wins.
 
"This will be the hardest game we've had to date, because we are now, for the first time, in the position of the favorites," said Kronsteiner.  "San Antonio is going to come in and play us very hard. We have to try to dominate this team, because when you are in last place, you tend to play in a different way than you do when you are in first place like when we played Carolina."
