Wynalda impressed with resurgent Strikers
[NASL: Week 4] A pair of clubs riding two-game winning streaks face off Saturday as Atlanta Silverbacks travel to meet second-place Fort Lauderdale Strikers at
Lockhart Stadium. Atlanta, in particular, needs a win if it wants to remain in striking distance of unbeaten and untied Minnesota United FC.
Fort Lauderdale goes into the game with
the edge, having won three of its first four games in the 2014 spring season. It won the last two meetings in the 2013 fall season against the Silverbacks, outscoring them, 7-2.
like the way [the Strikers] play," says Atlanta technical director Eric Wynalda, "and they have an entertaining squad. I think we have to be at our best if we're going to have any
sort of success against them. The elements might be a factor for other teams when they go down there, but that won't be a factor for us because we live in Atlanta. We're highly anticipating this trip,
and this will be a pivotal game for both sides."
