Orlando City Getting Back on Track

SANFORD -- The Lions look to get back on track after last Saturdays rebound win against Charleston, which put them five points clear atop the USL Pro table.

"We wanted to make sure we gave a good performance," said coach Heath. "We got a difficult stretch after these next two home games."

The Lions start a tough four-game road stretch when they visit the Dayton Dutch Lions on June 29, only to visit Pittsburgh the next day, June 30, when the Riverhounds host Orlando, after having a nail biting game earlier this season at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

They conclude their four game road stretch in Los Angeles, when the LA Blues host the Lions July 6 & 8.

Orlando City  looks to keep up strength during that stretch, especially after inking a deal with nutrition company, Lifemax.

With San Jose Earthquakes Loanee Alexandre to make his last appearance this Sunday at the Florida Citrus Bowl, when Antigua comes to town, Coach Heath is hoping to keep the Haiti International for a bit longer than expected.

"We're hoping that we can keep him longer, but we will be speaking to San Jose about that."

More players are expecting to arrive on loan, however, Adrian has his eyes set when the transfer window opens June 28, for MLS Clubs.

"We're hoping to get one or two people in once the window opens."

Jamie Watson, who scored the game winner on last Saturdays game, wasn't seen practicing Tuesday, due to an infection on his leg. Adrian Heath, though, is not ruling him out for Sundays home game against Antigua.
