[NASL: Fall Week 4] The San Antonio Scorpions will look to add to their NASL-record road winning streak when they seek their seventh away win in a row Sunday at FC Edmonton. They enter the game first in the fall standings and combined standings.

The Scorpions, who have not allowed a goal in their last 303 minutes, head into Clarke Stadium unbeaten and untied with with four wins in four games in the fall championship. They also lead the combined standings.  The spring and fall champions plus the two other teams with the most points over the season will enter the NASL semifinals.

Scorpions coach Alen Marcina is expecting a close game at Edmonton, which is last in the combined standings but has allowed only 13 goals in 12 games.

"As their record shows," he said, "Edmonton have a stingy defense that does not concede many goals and they are always a very difficult road game due to their physicality and discipline. But going into this weekend we're concentrating on further developing our game and focused on leaving with a positive result."
 
On Saturday, spring champion Minnesota United FC will look to continue its seven-game unbeaten streak as it hosts Ottawa Fury at Minneapolis' TCF Bank Stadium as part of a doubleheader that includes the Manchester City-Olympiakos international friendly.
