ATL UTD 2 looks to get back on track after a 4-0 loss at Pittsburgh Riverhounds on April 23.


Nelson Orji has made an impact since his ATL UTD 2 debut on April 9 against Detroit City.

The Nigerian defender made his first start in the next match against Indy Eleven on April 16, leading both teams in interceptions, clearances and tackles won.

In Atlanta's last match against Pittsburgh, Orji won three of his four aerial duels and made four interceptions. His tally of 10 interceptions over the last two games is a team high.


Louisville City is the only undefeated squad remaining in the 2022 USL Championship campaign, winning six and drawing three of its nine games.

A former homegrown player for Sporting Kansas City, Wilson Harris' five goals places him in a tie for third place among USLC goal scorers.

Louisville City extended its lead atop the Eastern Conference with a 2-0 victory over Pittsburgh Riverhounds last Saturday, April 30.
