Another road stretch - June marks the beginning of a new challenge for the Boys in Gold as they take to the road for four of the five matches this month. After suffering a defeat to NYCFC in April, Nashville has one draw and one win on the road. The team’s overall road record in MLS action this season sits at 2W-2L-2D.

“We have to concentrate on us,” said Hany Mukhtar. “We need to make sure what made us strong in the last games, in the home games, and we need to be aggressive even if we’re on the road. We know that we have a lot of games on the road, but we need to continue getting points.”

Joe Willis for All-Star - Joe Willis leads the league in save percentage at 83.3% and has a particularly good record against FC Dallas with four shutouts in six matches. Last time out against Columbus, he made a stellar save in stoppage time to preserve the three points.

“I felt like for me, he got better every year, and I’m very proud of him. The team is proud of him,” Mukhtar said. “He saved us a lot of points, and I think he’s definitely right now one of the best in the league.“
