FC Tampa Bay returned to the practice field for the first time this week Tuesday morning at Shimberg Fields. Despite holding a 23-10 advantage in shots, FCTB lost 2-0 to Puerto Rico on Sunday night for its first loss of 2011.
"There is no panic button," said Hill. "I am very happy with the effort. We were not as good as I would expect in the first half against Puerto Rico, but in the second half I have no complaints whatsoever. On another given day it would have been a different result possibly."
The club hits the road for the first time this season when it travels to Montreal for a match this Saturday, April 23. Kickoff at Saputo Stadium is set for 2:30 p.m.
"If we take that kind of second half performance from last week into Montreal and moving into the rest of the season, I think it will gives us a good platform to build off of."
Defender Andres Arango will be available to make his FC Tampa Bay debut this weekend against the Impact. Arango missed the first two matches for FCTB because of a red card infraction in his final game with Minnesota last year.
