United Gameday

What: Minnesota United FC (2-0-2) at Fort Lauderdale (0-3-1). 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Live broadcast available online at www.mnunitedfc.com.

Preview: A first vs. worst matchup features Minnesota, tied atop the North American Soccer League standings with eight points, and injury-plagued Fort Lauderdale, one of two league teams searching for its first victory. It is a classic trap game for Minnesota, which plays games against defending NASL champion Tampa Bay the next two weeks.

United FC at a glance: Gave up a late goal in a 2-2 stalemate with fellow first-place team Carolina. … Both RailHawks goals came off corner kicks. … Etienne Barbara earned NASL Player of the Week honors for scoring both Minnesota goals, his first two of the season. … Daryl Sattler’s average of one goal allowed per game ties him for the NASL’s stingiest goalkeeper.

Fort Lauderdale at a glance: The Strikers lost 2-1 to Tampa Bay in their last outing. … Goalkeeper Cody Laurendi sustained a lacerated kidney after colliding with a Tampa Bay player and will not return this season … The Strikers’ eight goals allowed is tied for the most in the NASL. … Help in goal appears to be on the way as Jeff Attinella of Major League Soccer’s Real Salt Lake will join Fort Lauderdale on loan. Attinella helped Tampa Bay win the championship last season.
