PITTSBURGH (July 13, 2017) – The Pittsburgh Riverhounds (5-7-5) travel to Bethlehem this Saturday, July 15, for their second of three straight matches on the road, facing Steel FC (8-6-2) at 5 p.m. at Goodman Stadium.

The first of three meetings between the two clubs this season, the in-state foes also met three times last year, finishing 1-1-1 with the Hounds picking up their lone victory at Highmark Stadium, 2-1.

Bethlehem is currently in the midst of a seven-game unbeaten streak, while Pittsburgh is only one of six teams in the East to hold a .500 or better record away from home (2-2-4). The Steel have not lost at home since May 25 – a 1-0 defeat against the Charleston Battery.

Heading into Saturday, the Hounds sit 11th and only one point out of playoff position in the East. They will begin a stretch of four straight games against teams in the top-eight of the table and, to date, are 3-4-0 when facing clubs with a winning record.
