Saturday’s match will be the second of two meetings this season against the Swope Park Rangers. On August 29, the Roughnecks fell 2-1 to the Rangers at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City. Tulsa struck first in the match when a defender slid in front of Michael Gamble, but missed an attempted tackle, leaving Gamble with just the keeper to beat allowing him to score. But Swope Park scored the final two goals of the match and took home the win.

The Roughnecks are coming off a 4-1 loss against Sacramento in which Nemanja Vukovic scored Tulsa’s lone goal off of a penalty kick. Tulsa is 1-3-1 over its last five matches and has an overall record of 3-8-4 with Michael Nsien as head coach.
