New York City FC just finished their five-game homestand where they went 3-1-1.  They did win three matches in a row during that time but failed to win the final game against the Colorado Rapids.  Except for that game, one can argue that the Pigeons had a successful homestand.  Realistically, the loss should have been a draw or win based on the team’s performance and ended the time at home on a sour note.

The rest of May will be a challenge, and their first road game in over a month is no different.  NYCFC will travel north to face Toronto FC.  Since the 2-1 win earlier in the season, the Reds have turned things around and have become one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.  They sit in third place in the table with 19 points.  In all competitions, the team has won five games in a row.

Hence, NYCFC will face a dangerous team.  Toronto is also scoring more goals, which will lead to plenty of pressure on the Pigeons’ defense.  Also, the Boys in Blue are back on the road, and that tends to be a dangerous place.

Meanwhile, after a few weeks off, the “Cushing Out” crowd will be in full force if NYCFC loses their second game in a row.  That is why Nick Cushing must prepare for an influx of criticism.  Sure, it has been nice with how his team has beaten Toronto in four of the last five matches.  However, the Reds struggled for some time, enabling the visiting side to have the success that they had.

Final Notes

Jovan Mijatović was not in the match-day squad last weekend and instead found himself with NYCFC II for the U.S. Open Cup during the week.  What is going on with the striker, and will Cushing and the team open up about his lack of playing time?  This was a player who played in the Champions League.  It will be interesting to see what happens on Saturday.
