PITTSBURGH (June 29, 2021) — Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC looks for its fifth consecutive win away from Highmark Stadium and fourth straight win overall when they face Loudoun United FC at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at Segra Field in Leesburg, Va. The match will be streamed on ESPN+.
Friday, the Hounds (5-3-2) earned their first home win of the season, defeating the New York Red Bulls II, 2-1. Kenardo Forbes notched his 27th assist with the Hounds on the first goal, tying him with Kevin Kerr for the most in club history. Forbes also earned a spot on the USL Team of the Week for his play Friday.
Just like the Hounds, Loudoun (1-7-0) is coming off short rest. It returns home after dropping a 3-0 result to the Charleston Battery last Saturday.
The matchup is the Hounds’ second trip to Segra Field this season. The Hounds took care of business in their first encounter on June 2, downing Loudoun, 3-2. Russell Cicerone scored the eventual winning goal for the Hounds at the penalty spot after the team had a 2-0 halftime lead through an Anthony Velarde strike and an own goal.
The Hounds have several streaks on the line in their next match.
They have won their last four matches away from home, including a 2-1 win over the division-leading Tampa Bay Rowdies in their last road match. The Hounds have matched this streak in each of the last two seasons, both of which featured wins against Loudoun.
The Hounds also boast a 6-0-0 record since Loudoun entered the USL Championship in 2019. They’ve recorded four clean sheets against Loudoun and have outscored them 12-3 all time.
Finally, the Hounds have won eight straight weeknight matches. The team’s last loss on a weekday was a heartbreaking 1-0 loss at the hands of the Indy Eleven on Wednesday, June 22, 2020.
