08/22/2017 06:18 PM

Louisville City FC is hoping to get its third USL win in a row on Wednesday when it hosts Harrisburg City.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET inside Slugger Field.

It will be the second time this season that the two teams will face each other.

Harrisburg City pulled off the big upset on LouCity FC in late June, beating the Boys in Purple 1-0, snapping LCFC’s three-match winning streak in the process.

“I think the level of our intensity, the level of our play needs to be higher than it was when we played them last,” said head coach James O’Connor.

A duo of LouCity players were also recognized on Tuesday by the USL, as forward Luke Spencer and defender Oscar Jimenez were each named to the “USL Team of the Week.”

Spencer scored two goals in LCFC’s 3-1 win over Bethlehem Steel FC on Sunday.

Jimenez had two assists during the teams win over Bethlehem Steel FC.
