Atlanta United Loan Watch Preview: Xolos play tonight, USL playoffs this weekend

Could Villalba play tonight? Battery to face a raucous crowd.

Atlanta United

Chris McCann - Coventry City - League One

Coventry City at Porte Valle - Saturday, October 1 at 10 a.m. EST - League One

Coventry City vs Northampton - Tuesday, October 4 at 2:45 p.m. EST - Football League Trophy Group Stage

Chris McCann is recovering from a lower body injury. He was left off the match-day roster against Gillingham. We’ll see if he sees action over the next two matches.

Tito Villalba - Club Tijuana - Liga MX

Club Tijuana vs Atlas - Friday, September 29 at 10 p.m. EST

Hector Villalba is still getting sparse minutes on his loan stint in Mexico. Maybe Villalba makes the bench for this match, maybe not. It’s OK though. So long as he’s training and getting the occasional minutes, his time with Tijuana is fine.

Kenwyne Jones - Central FC - TT Pro League

Central FC at Sporting Kansas City - Wednesday, October 19 at 8 p.m. EST - CONCACAF Champions League

The TT Pro League is still inactive and there’s no official start date as of yet. His next match will probably be another COCACAF Champions League match against Sporting KC.

Junior Burgos - Tampa Bay Rowdies - NASL

Tampa Bay Rowdies vs Miami - Saturday, October 1 at 7:30 p.m. EST

Burgos has had a very unfortunate season. The club bought Joe Cole and his minutes have rapidly deteriorated. You can watch this match through ESPN3.

Alex Tambakis, Jeffery Otoo and Andrew Carleton - Charleston Battery - USL

Charleston Battery at FC Cincinnati - Sunday, October 2 at 7:30 p.m. EST

It’s playoff time for USL teams. The Battery take on FC Cincinnati and will do so in front of an enormous Cincinnati crowd. We’ll see how Charleston handles the environment. I expect the Battery will go with veterans, but Carleton could start. If not, expect him to come off the bench.

Tambakis will likely start in goal since he’s owned the majority of the starting minutes in goal. Otoo probably won’t see the field in this one, especially if it’s a close match.

This match will be made available on Youtube.
