The MLS side Philadelphia Union has recently been struggling to collect points as their latest results have seen the team of Jim Curtin losing against: Chicago Fire, Montreal Impact, Portland Timbers and New York Red Bulls.
They were not able to win a single match in September and now are at risk of not snatching a playoff contention spot.
The last 2 upcoming league matches of Philadelphia Union sees them facing off with Orlando SC and New York Red Bulls on October 16 and 23 respectively. In these approaching games, the team of Jim Curtin has to secure points in order to have any realistic chance of getting a playoff position, which is one of the initial objectives of the club at the start of the season.
Jay Sugarman is the chief executive officer of Philadelphia Union and he has voiced his sense of urgency that has recently been brought up after having lost so many matches in a successive manner.
“There’s a sense of urgency. It’s still a confident group. It’s obvious we need to get a win, but the focus has been getting back to basics. If we play like we’re capable of and everyone puts in a good performance at home, where we’ve been good this year, the rest will take care of itself. I believe that. If we can take points from Orlando City and Red Bulls, we can move up the table. Every point matters at this stage. I think we’re one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference.” Philadelphia Union’s Jay Sugarman said.
The season is coming down to the wire for Philadelphia Union as any amount of points that they are able to secure in these last 2 remaining matches of the season can be the decisive factor in the club’s task of securing a playoff position or just barely missing out from it.
