The first five matches have not gone the way anyone would have thought for NJ/NY Gotham FC.  The team is 1-2-2 and has only scored 0.6 goals per match.  The offensive effort is there, but goals are difficult to come by for some unknown reason.  There were also a few games where the performances were lackluster, especially the fixture against the Washington Spirit.  That match was arguably the worst one of the year so far.

That is why this weekend will be critical for Gotham FC.  Last week was a must-win, but they just managed to escape with a draw thanks to Rose Lavelle.  This time around, if the Bats fail to win, then it might be time to hit the panic button.  It does not help that the North Carolina Courage, who won 1-0 in the opposite fixture, will be the team they have to face.

Right now, the Courage sits in fourth place and has a 4-3-0 record.  They are coming off a mid-week loss to the Orlando Pride, so the extra match means Gotham will be more rested.  Moreover, the visiting team has only won at home and lost all their road fixtures.  Therefore, the home side must take advantage of this.

Gotham FC has the talent to grab the goals to win as well.  Esther González, Lynn Williams, and Yazmeen Ryan are all capable of getting the goals if they start as the attacking three.  Then, Katie Stengel and Delanie Sheehan also could find the back of the net regardless of where they play.  Fans also saw what Lavelle does for the attack, acting as a provider and a goal-scorer.

Final Notes

Lavelle was stellar in her substitute appearance against Racing Louisville FC.  She will have her minutes restricted, but if she is ready to plan an entire half, then hopefully Gotham FC will have her for that time.
