Forge team news and form: Forge saved their skin

Despite being the better of the two teams at Tim Hortons Field on the 6th of July, coach Smyrniotis were lucky to get a point out of the game against Vancouver. Coach Ghotbi’s boys were simply lethal on the counter and could’ve gotten the basket full of points easily.

Player to watch: Emil Gazdov

As stated earlier in our Forge vs Pacific prediction, coach Merriman’s boys got the three points in the game against Atletico Ottawa last week. The culprit to blame? Emil Gazdov, of course. The shot-stopper made five crucial saves to put an end to Gonzalez’s run.

Second player to watch: Josh Heard

29-year-old Josh Heard wasn’t among the starters last week, but we think we could see him record some minutes at Tim Hortons Field. He is the team captain so if he is fit, he will surely play.
