Do Or Die
The Chattanooga Red Wolves will host Forward Madison FC on Saturday for their last match at CHI Memorial Stadium of the 2020 season. The game is scheduled to kickoff at 1:00 PM EST, and it will be the second meeting between the two sides of the season. The #6 Chattanooga Red Wolves currently have 18 points, while #8 Forward Madison FC have 17 points. Both teams have only 3 games remaining to be played, as the season winds to a close, and the race for 2nd place tightens. Neither team has been able to pick up a win in their last three matches, and both sides desperately need to change that if they want to stay in the race for the final. The Red Wolves trail the second place Richmond Kickers by just 5 points, and they will have the opportunity to play Richmond as one of their remaining matches, which offers them a chance to overtake them if they can take care of business this weekend.Gaining 3 points today will prove to be crucial and will narrow that gap to be within striking distance once CRW plays Richmond on the road. The Red Wolves will be hoping for Union Omaha and North Texas SC to drop their remaining games, in order to close the gap in the battle for 2nd place.
Forward Madison FC and the Chattanooga Red Wolves met three times in 2019, and every contest was tightly contested and evenly matched. The Red Wolves defeated Madison in their second ever game as an organization back in April, in a 1-0 win at David Stanton Field, the former temporary home of the Red Wolves. The next two matchups would both end in draws, with a 2-2 draw in Chattanooga, followed by a 1-1 draw on the road. Forward Madison ended the season in 4th place with 43 points, barely edging out the Red Wolves who finished 5th with 40 points.
The last home match of the year for the Red Wolves at CHI Memorial Stadium is set to kick off at 1:00 PM EST.
