The New York Cosmos are ready to take aim against the Ottawa Fury on Saturday night at Shuart Stadium. They took plenty of aim against the Indy Eleven last Saturday but came up without anything to show for it. With the exception of Andres Flores who will be called away to play with El Salvador, head coach Giovanni Savarese will have all of his players at his disposal when he goes to select his 18 players on Saturday. He is essentially in the same position that he was in last week. What will have to change this week in order for the team to get a favorable result? Coach Savarese’s answer was simple.
“First of all the team has to bring the right spirit” replied coach Savarese. “We have to make sure that we achieve the things on the field and that we have are aggressive. The attitude is going to be the most important part to be able to win the match.”
The Cosmos will need pivotal three points in order to hold onto their playoff chances. They currently sit in third place in the combined points table. In the fall standings, three points separates the Cosmos from 6th place and 3rd place where the Fort Lauderdale Strikers now sit. Gametime for this Saturday’s match is 7:30pm with the first 2,500 fans receiving seat cushions.
