FC Monmouth will need to get a result to stay in the race for a playoff spot when they welcome Atlantic City FC to Count Basie Park on Wednesday night.
Atlantic City was last on the pitch on Saturday when they defeated New Jersey Copa FC, 3-0, at home. The Aces currently hold a record of 5-2-1 in the Keystone Conference, sitting second in the table on goal differential.
FC Monmouth and Atlantic City met earlier this season on May 29th in Egg Harbor Township, where FC Monmouth were 1-0 victors after waiting for a three-hour weather delay to end in order to play the last twenty minutes of the match.
Interestingly, the last time the two sides faced each other at Count Basie Park, the match was also affected by weather. FC Monmouth won by the same scoreline, 1-0, in a game that was called off after 49 minutes of play. Midfielder John Antunes scored the first-ever goal in club history early on in the first half, a goal that would prove to be the game-winner in FC Monmouth’s first-ever home match.
