With the postponement of RGVFC’s postponement vs. Austin and Portland Timbers 2’s win last week, the RGVFC Toros are the only club in the USL Championship without a win.
RGVFC Toros (0-9-3)
The Toros now have the unwanted distinction of being the only winless club in the league. Timbers 2 have the most goals conceded in the league and the worst goal differential (-25) and still have zero draws, but they have that elusive win that RGVFC is searching for. After hanging on to 34th in the USL Power Rankings, they now slip down to 35th out of 35 teams.
Last weekend’s match vs. Austin Bold FC was postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test and the club will return over the weekend as they host FC Tulsa. Gerson Echeverry’s side will be looking to end a four-match losing streak. In those matches, the Toros have not been shutout once which turns the focus to a defense that has struggled mightily lately. They have lost both matches vs. Tulsa this season by 2-1 scorelines.
This Week’s Quote-A-Bull: Robert Castellanos
On how the Toros can get back on track defensively vs. FC Tulsa:
“We just need to stay more compact and cover each other when we get pulled out of our positions.”
FC Tulsa (3-2-7)
They enter the match just above the cutoff line for a playoff position in Group D, coming off three consecutive draws. While they aren’t losses, the club will actually be frustrating by giving up leads in those matches.
Tulsa is being led by forward Dario Suarez. The Cuban striker has six goals in the club’s last four matches and has helped the club only be shutout twice in 12 matches, both by San Antonio FC.
This will be a big match for FC Tulsa as they try to pick up three points against the bottom-of-the-table Toros before matchups with once-beaten San Antonio FC and rival OKC Energy FC.
