Player to watch: Callum Irving

31-year-old Callum Irving is enjoying the best days of his professional career. With only 19 goals conceded this season, Callum has a record with which he can be justly proud.

Second player to watch: Tristan Borges

Forge’s chief goalscorer also made the cut for our Forge vs Vancouver predictions this week. So far, Tristan bagged three goals. However, we know he has the required goods to outscore most of his colleagues, so we should see him perform against Vancouver in the second half.
