Rowdies Notes
The Tampa Bay Rowdies were eliminated from playoff contention last weekend with a 2-1 home loss to the Charlotte Independence. This will be the Rowdies’ final match of 2018.

Rowdies goalkeeper Daniel Vega, who has played every minute of his 10 games since signing with Tampa Bay in August, will serve a one-game suspension due to a red card received after the final whistle of last weekend’s loss for abusive language.

Vega is just one of six absences from the Rowdies this weekend, who will also be without David Najem, Kyle Curinga, Stefano Bonomo, Georgi Hristov and Dom Oduro all due to injury.

If Hunter Gorskie appears in this match, he’ll become the first Rowdies player since Tamika Mkandawire in 2015 to appear in every regular season match in a season.
