STLFC to host Charlotte

St. Louis FC plays its third home game among its first four games to start the season -- and its final home day game -- Saturday against the Charlotte Independence at 1 p.m. at Soccer Park. STLFC is tied for first place in the Eastern Conference with Tampa Bay with a league-high seven points after three games. Charlotte is 0-1-1, having lost to Indy Eleven, which STLFC beat to start the season, and tying Atlanta United 2, giving up a goal in the 94th minute after taking the lead in the 93rd.

Dominic Oduro, who played in 346 MLS games for eight teams, has two goals in two games for Charlotte. (Tom Timmermann)
