Heath Options

City Coach, Adrian Heath, said the team is ready to rebound against the New England Revolution this Sunday after a controversial finish in Philadelphia.  

Notably absent from City’s lineup during the loss were Cyle Larin and Cristian Higuita as well as defender, Tommy Redding. All sat out due to injury. Brek Shea was also absent but due to the fact that he was serving his one game suspension. Coach Heath said he is hopeful to see all of them back in action Sunday against the Revolution.

“Cyle, we are hopeful he is going to be okay. Tommy Redding, we are hopeful he’s going to be okay. Cristian Higuita, obviously Brek who’s back in… We are hopeful they will be available for Sunday,” Heath said.

Despite all of the setbacks, Coach Heath said that the extended time between games has been helpful in their preparation during training.

“Last week we had a small week and couldn’t do a lot. This week, we can actually get plenty of work into the players,” Heath said.

With the roster looking stronger and the game looming in the distance, Coach Heath offers his thoughts before the team takes the pitch.

“I look forward to the game. You know, I think that it’s always been a really good game against New England. I think they’re a really good team. So I know it’s going to be tough for us but I am looking forward to it.”

Orlando City takes on the New England Revolution this Sunday, April 17, at 3:30pm in the Orlando Citrus Bowl.
