In other news, New Mexico United is set to return to action on Saturday. It is a big game for the team as it looks to make up some ground on the rest of the league.

“I see the next few games as so much opportunity for us, and not any other team in the league has that opportunity,” said head coach Zach Prince. “They’ve all played 12 games, we’ve played 10, so there’s six points out there that we didn’t have the chance to gain. So, it’s important for us to take that opportunity and capitalize on it, and when we capitalize of that then we’re exactly where we want to be.”
