FC Monmouth will look to build on their 2-0 NPSL season-opening win over New Jersey Copa FC at Count Basie Park on Saturday when they face them again at Saint John Vianney High School on Wednesday evening.

The 2019 Keystone Conference schedule put the two clubs in the peculiar situation of facing each other back-to-back to start the season. FC Monmouth came away from the home ‘leg’ with all three points thanks to an energetic attacking display and a clean defensive performance where they held Copa from a single shot on target.

Surely, it will be interesting to see how both sides shape up and what style they bring to Wednesday’s match after battling each other for 90 minutes just a few days ago. FC Monmouth holds a 2-0-1 all-time record over NJ Copa FC heading into the rematch.
