Pivotal match sees Madison travel to Charlotte for first time

Charlotte Independence vs. Forward Madison FC

Venue: American Legion Memorial Stadium; Charlotte, N.C.
Kickoff: 6 p.m. ET
Weather: Cloudy, 86°
Broadcast: ESPN+
Hashtag: #CLTvMAD

Fresh off a scintillating 2-1 win over the Kickers on Thursday, Forward Madison FC will look to extend its unbeaten streak to six as the 'Mingos face a struggling Charlotte Independence side. In a pivotal match for both sides, a win or draw for Madison would match its all-time record of six consecutive matches unbeaten (2021), while a loss for Charlotte would match its all-time record of five consecutive regular-season losses (2017). The pair have only met once, a 2-1 Independence win in Madison earlier in the year.

CLT - Miguel Ibarra: The floundering Jacks are in desperate need of veteran leadership and Ibarra may just be the one capable of willing the side out of its recent form. The 32-year-old midfielder is currently tied at second in the league with four assists.

MAD - Mikey Maldonado: Maldonado recorded his first professional goal and added an assist to a strong outing in Statesboro last week. Additionally, Maldonado created a pair of chances and won four tackles.
