Gameday 20: Pittsburgh Riverhounds vs. Real Salt Lake Reserves

AwayGameday20

Rio Tinto Stadium – 7PM

After a lengthy, broken laptop fueled absence, the gameday post has returned.

The Riverhounds find themselves standing in front of a HUGE weekend that will dictate how this season will finish.  Currently sitting at the bottom of the table, yet only six points shy of a playoff position, the six points available this weekend could be the difference between the final couple of games being playoff-esque fixtures or just kicking the ball around until the 2014 season gets Old Yeller’ed.
