Michael Cox wrote his name into Nashville SC’s history book after scoring the game winning goal against Bethlehem Steel FC on Saturday. The Boys in Gold claimed their first victory and an important three points on the road, but this team still has a lot of work to do.
After picking up a hard fought point at Nissan Stadium, Nashville SC heads out on the road against Bethlehem Steel FC.
Bethlehem sits fifth in the Eastern Conference table, after defeating the Richmond Kickers 4-1 and losing to the Tampa Bay Rowdies 2-0. Saturday’s match represents a true test for Nashville after opening against the defending USL champs Louisville City FC and playing a defensive first Pittsburgh Riverhounds.
We reached out to Evan Villella, Bethlehem Steel FC beat writer for Brotherly Game and host of The USL Show podcast, to learn more about Nashville’s next opponent. Villella is also a special guest on Friday’s Speedway Soccer Pod. Nashville SC takes on Bethlehem Steel FC at Goodman Stadium on Saturday at 1 p.m. CT.
We asked Villella about Bethlehem’s first two games, which players to watch out for, if Nashville will get on the score sheet and his final score prediction.
Pickens – 7.5: Did well to deny Chattanooga a goal in the first 10 minutes. Otherwise wasn’t tested much, but took care of business.
Bourgeois – 7: Played the first half and looked solid. Handled Chattanooga’s early attacks well and had a quiet rest of the night.
Doyle – 6.5: Played well for the most part. Passed well out of the back and pushed up into midfield on occasion. Takes a hit for a sloppy giveaway just outside his own 18 that directly led to Chattanooga’s goal.
