With Orlando City already in USL Pro action, the Lions made some more moves this past week which include bolstering their midfield.
OCSC announced the arrival of Brian "Cobi" Span on Wednesday, after agreeing with MLS side FC Dallas to loan the midfielder for the 2014 USL Pro season.
With the addition of Span, Orlando's midfield now jumps to 10 players filling that position. City head coach Adrian Heath did tell the OSJ that the formation won't change, but did add after last Saturday's home-opener that another player will be added to increase bodies in the final third.
Midfielder Kevin Molino was moved up top alongside forward Corey Hertzog last week, signaling that Heath is utilizing Molino as a false No. 9.
