Valour FC will attempt to rebound after Saturday’s crushing – and controversial – 2-1 loss to Pacific FC in which they were leading before a questionable call left them a man down for the final 30 minutes in which they conceded two goals.
The club has lost two games in a row for the first time this season and is stuck on 20 points – nine out of the fourth and final Canadian Premier League playoff position.
All-time leading scorer Moses Dyer returns after missing the loss last weekend due to yellow-card accumulation and his presence could be massive for a club which has scored just once in each of its last five matches for two wins, two losses and a draw.
Cavalry is again challenging for top spot in the CPL and is currently just one point behind Pacific and Forge FC. They knocked off FC Edmonton 2-nil on the weekend to stop a three-match losing skid.
VALOUR FC SPOTLIGHT:
#17 Brett Levis, FB: Valour’s veteran fullback is having his best season since arriving in Winnipeg. A steady force on the pitch, he can shut down attackers on the left flank and has been creative and intelligent in his offensive forays.
Valour will need to continue to push for more offence – and more finish – and forward/midfielder Moses Dyer not only leads the team in goals with seven, he is tied for second in the CPL with 31 shots.
