ATL UTD 2 is coming off a 2-1 loss on the weekend and looks to get its third win of the season on Wednesday night. Academy player Ajani Fortune scored his first professional goal last time out and also became the fourth current Academy player to find the back of the net for Atlanta this season. 

Tampa Bay lost its last match against the Charleston Battery 1-0 on Sept. 11. The Rowdies and Charleston are battling for the top spot in Group H with only a couple weeks left to play in the regular season. Sebastian Guenzatti leads the team with six goals scored this season. Yann Ekra and Lewis Hilton have three assists each.

This will be the final meeting of the season between the two sides. Tampa Bay has won the three previous meetings this year. ATL UTD 2 is looking for its first win against the veteran side on Wednesday night at Fifth Third Bank Stadium.
