Leverock & Harrisburg Looking for More Wins

IslandStats.com
With the two wins in their two games, City Islanders FC have put themselves back in the playoff race and get even closer with two big wins this Friday, July 29th and Tuesday, August 2nd at FNB Field.

For only the second time this season City was able to string together wins. It was their first such feat on the road. The first 2-1 victory in Pittsburgh gave them the upper hand in the Keystone Derby Cup. After that they traveled to Bethlehem for the first time and took down Bethlehem Steel FC 1-0. City will meet both of these teams later in the season at home.

By taking those two games they have jumped back into the postseason conversation with work left to do. They are still three spots and five points out of the final spot in the playoffs.

City has been led by a different attack than they started the season with. While Aaron Wheeler is still the leading goal scorer despite suffering an injury weeks ago, the Isles have been led by a balanced attack of a few players.

Jose Barril is the overall leading scorer with 14 points and has been helped by Craig Foster and Paul Wilson who each have four goals on the season.

Rochester Rhinos – Friday, July 29th @ 7pm.

The first foe to make their way to Harrisburg will be the Rochester Rhinos. It will be the second meeting this season between the two long time rivals. In their first meeting the Rhinos leapt out to an early two goal lead before City pushed back with a late goal from Craig Foster. Ultimately Rochester held on for the 2-1 victory.

Rochester only has four losses on the season and currently sit in fifth place in the division. The Rhinos are on a seven game unbeaten streak, but have played to 1-1 draws in their last two games. Christian Volesky leads the team with 6 goals and two assists on the season.

New York Red Bulls II – Tuesday, August 2nd @ 7pm.

The Red Bulls will come into FNB field off of only their second loss of the season. They are in the second spot in the division, but could solidify themselves as the top team in the league with a win on Tuesday.

City and the Red Bulls met earlier in the season with New York taking a narrow 1-0 win in Red Bull Arena. The only goal scored came in the 7th minute from Sean Davis for his only goal of the year.

Before heading to City Island on Tuesday New York will face off against the Richmond Kickers on the road as well.

After heading back on the road for two games following the two game homestand, City will welcome both Pennsylvania teams to FNB Field one last time this season. The Riverhounds will come in for the final leg of the Keystone Derby Cup on Friday, August 29th and Bethlehem will follow on Tuesday, August 30th.

Wells Set to Miss Season Opener
Bermuda International and Huddersfield Town leading scorer Nahki Wells will miss the start of Huddersfield Town’s Championship campaign.

The 26-year-old frontman is nursing a knee problem and head coach David Wagner has confirmed from Austria that his 18-goal marksman is out of training for the next two weeks.

That means he will miss the final pre-season friendly against FC Ingolstadt in Austria on Friday and, more importantly, the opening Championship clash with Brentford at the John Smith’s Stadium a week on Saturday.

That’s a massive blow to Town, who had £1.3m signing Wells in their line-up on 47 occasions last season.

“Nahki is a question mark and we should not rush him – we have to make sure he will help us over the season,” said Wagner, whose side drew 0-0 with Werder Bremen with Wells watching from the stands.

“Unfortunately he is out for two weeks from training with the group but, at the end of the day it’s only two weeks in a 10-month season. It’s nothing.”

Wells played in the opening friendly at Guiseley and two behind-closed-doors games against Accrington Stanley and Rochdale but was not involved at Oldham or against Liverpool, ahead of the training camp in Austria.

Wells 10/1 Favorite to Lead the Championship Scoring

IslandStats.com
Huddersfield Town striker Nahki Wells is 10/1 to be the Championship's top scorer in 2016-17.

Dwight Gayle, who joined Newcastle United from Crystal Palace in a £10m deal this summer, is the bookies' favourite to lead the way at 8/1.

Wells netted 18 goals in all competitions to top the Huddersfield scoring charts.

Derby County striker Chris Martin Fernando Forestieri - Sheffield Wednesday, Britt Assombalonga - Nottingham Forest, Fulham hit man Ross McCormack are all just behind Gayle at 10/1, along with Aston Villa's Rudy Gestede.


Newcastle's Aleksandar Mitrovic is at 12/1, followed by Glenn Murray from Brighton & Hove Albion, Cameron Jerome from Norwich City and Scott Hogan from Brentford are at 16/1.


Bristol City striker Jonathan Kodjia is not far behind at 25/1, after hitting 19 league goals in his first season at Ashton Gate.

Dante Leverock & Harrisburg Win Back to Back

IslandStats.com
Dante Leverock and his Harrisburg City Islanders teammates recorded back-to-back victories for the second time this season as Brett Jankouskas’ second-half goal earned a 1-0 victory against Bethlehem Steel FC at Goodman Stadium.

A free kick by Ryan Richter that was bobbled but recovered by Harrisburg goalkeeper Keasel Broome was the closest either side came to taking the lead in the first half, as neither side was able to manufacture much threat in the attacking third.

That continued in the second half, until the City Islanders sprang out on a counter-attack with 16 minutes to go to take the lead. Cardel Benbow’s cross from the right was met with a perfect finish by Brett Jankouskas, and the goal proved decisive as the City Islanders took the road victory.

Lambe & Carlisle United Go Down

IslandStats.com
Reggie Lambe and his Carlisle United teammates went down 1 - 0 in their first pre-season friendly following their four day mini-break against Barrow at Holker Street.

The hosts took the lead in the 17th minute when Brian Harrison pounced on a loose controled ball in the box, he fell to the floor as the defender tried to recover and Ross Hannah stepped up to smash the spot kick into the bottom corner.

Lambe played 60 minutes, but in the 45th minute Lambe sparked an attack when he drove from deep. He shot low and hard and Barrow goalkeeper Joel Dixon was relieved to see it fly an inch wide of his bottom corner.
