Tulsa Roughnecks FC are back in action at ONEOK Field for the second time this week.  The Roughnecks will host league-leading Real Monarchs SLC on Saturday, July 1 with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in downtown Tulsa.     

TRFC will look to snap a three-game losing streak against the first-place Monarchs.  Tulsa currently has 15 points on the season with a 5-8-0 record.

The streaking Monarchs come into the match with a league-best 37 points and with only one loss on the season (12-1-1).  They are unbeaten in their last 10 outings since losing 2-1 at Colorado Springs on April 21.  Real drew 1-1 with Phoenix Rising in its last match.

The game telecast will be available through the USL Match Center on YouTube, but Cox subscribers in Tulsa can watch the game live on YurView Channel 1333.  Every home match for the remainder of the regular season, with the one exception, will be shown live by Cox.

LOOKING FOR A NEW STREAK:  The Roughnecks had a three-match home winning streak snapped with Tuesday’s 2-1 loss against Swope Park. Tulsa has won four of seven home matches this season. 

HAYES JOINS TRFC:   Midfielder Jacori Hayes is expected to join the Roughnecks for Saturday’s match.  Hayes will join TRFC on loan from FC Dallas of Major League Soccer.  He was the first pick for Dallas in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft out of Wake Forest University. 

UGARTE OUT:  Tulsa defender Francisco Ugarte will serve a mandatory one-match suspension on Saturday after receiving his eighth yellow card of the season on Tuesday.

INJURIES:  TRFC is expected to be near full strength for the match.  The only injury concern comes from defender Jorge Corrales who suffered a quad strain in Tuesday’s outing, but he is likely to be available for Head Coach David Vaudreuil.

ORANGE, ORANGE:  The Roughnecks will wear their orange shirts and orange shorts in the match.  Real Monarchs will wear all-white uniforms.
