Chattanooga FC returns home after a productive west coast trip last week that saw them collect 4 points. It is a short turnaround for the boys, who arrived back in Chattanooga late on Thursday night from a cross-country flight.
Chattanooga FC hosts Los Angeles Force at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Finley Stadium. Gates open at 6:30 p.m.
The boys know ever point matters as they push to the playoffs.
"We have been just focusing on ourselves and how we can be 1% better every day," said CFC midfielder Ian Cerro. "At this stage of the season, we need to keep believing and reminding ourselves about our principles, identity, and culture. This will take us to where we want to be in the endand we feel excited about where we can go."
LA has plenty to fight for as it sits just one spot out of the playoffs and still has a chance to make it into the Top 6. Meanwhile, Chattanooga FC is looking for additional points to solidify its second-place ranking which would guarantee the bye.
