Energy FC returns to action on Saturday after a two week long layoff. Energy FC faces the Pittsburgh Riverhounds and looks to extend its six match unbeaten streak. The expansion side is currently in eight place in the United Soccer League’s Pro division standings with a 5-7-3 record. Pittsburgh is 3-9-5.
