The Rhinos get to try and get the taste of losing in the Open Cup out of their mouths against Montreal tomorrow evening at Marina Autos Stadium.
Montreal will likely be in a foul mood after falling to Vancouver on Wednesday 2-1 on a stoppage time goal by Whitecaps defender Luca Bellisomo.
Good news for Rochester is that Edy Sebrango and David Testo are amongst the injured Impact players that didn't make the trip to Rochester.
The forecast looks good, so hopefully the Rhinos can put on a show like they did last weekend when they took out Puerto Rico 3-0.
