[NASL: Fall Week 6] The San Antonio Scorpions will look for their sixth win in seven games in the NASL fall championship when they travel to Canada to face Ottawa Fury at TD Place on Sunday.
 
The Scorpions, winners of six of their last seven games on the road, are coming off a 2-0 win over visiting Indy Eleven, while the Fury is winless in its last six games after it dropped a 2-1 decision at home to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

"San Antonio is playing well at the moment," said Fury head coach Marc Dos Santos, "and we will have to be ready if we want to get a positive result. Our fans have shown fantastic support and are part of our strengths when we are playing at home. We are working hard and doing everything it takes to bounce back. We will be ready for this challenge."

The Tampa Bay Rowdies host the New York Cosmos at Al Lang Stadium Saturday (ESPN3 at 7:30 pm ET) in a battle of third- and fourth-place teams in the fall standings. The last meeting between the two teams was during the spring season when the Cosmos that came away with a 3-0 win in St. Petersburg.
 
"I expect an exciting match and I hope we can give our great fans a victory that they long for and that they deserve," said Rowdies coach Ricky Hill.  "We haven't beaten the Cosmos yet since they've been back. They had a great victory Saturday night in Atlanta and we had a great victory Saturday night in Carolina, so both teams are coming in with a positive frame of mind."
 
The Cosmos are currently well place, in third place, in the NASL combined standings to make the playoffs, but the Rowdies need a win.
