The Cosmos will look to remain unbeaten this evening when they take on the Carolina RailHawks. The cushion at the top of the NASL spring table is currently five points, and Gio Savarese's side will want to do everything possible to ensure that it remains at least that large.
Tonight's opponents are the Carolina RailHawks, who are probably a better side than their current point total would indicate. The RailHawks really need a victory to keep any hope of winning the spring title alive, while a loss would see them mathematically eliminated from the spring championship race.
