[NASL PREVIEW: Week 10] The expansion New York Cosmos have opened up a four-point lead in the NASL's fall season with three straight wins and six games in a row without a defeat heading into Saturday's game against Minnesota United FC at NSC Stadium on Saturday evening.
 
United is one of three teams along with the Tampa Bay Rowdies and Carolina RailHawks holding down second place behind the Cosmos, whose winning streak began with a 1-0 win over Minnesota three weeks ago.
 
"First of all, Minnesota is a very good team," said Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese. "They presented some difficulties when we played them at home and we were fortunate to come away with the win. So we know this weekend will be a good challenge from them."
 
Tampa Bay takes the best road record of the season -- only two losses in 10 games -- into the Florida derby against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers at Lockhart Stadium.

"We couldn't ask for Saturday's match to come soon enough," said Rowdies coach Ricky Hill. "It will be a great way to bounce back from Sunday's tough defeat against New York, and everyone on this team is looking forward to facing another historic rival. To play in a local derby is always special and it's a fantastic opportunity to begin another streak which we will need if we want to make it to the Soccer Bowl."
