It wasn't pretty last weekend when the Rhinos fell to league leaders Orlando City by a 4-0 score.
Tonight, the Rhinos return home to host the Pittsburgh Riverhounds in a match that the Rhinos hope to use to get back on track as they finish out the final five games of the regular season at Sahlen's Stadium.
The Riverhounds have been near the bottom of the USL PRO League table for most of the season, in large part due to one of the worst offenses in the league. Given the Rhinos strength in goal and on defense, it shouldn't be surprising if Kristian Nicht adds to his league leading seven clean sheets.
