Bradley Carnell has challenged St. Louis City to make Citypark a formidable place to play as they prepare to welcome the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.

St. Louis have lost just one of their six MLS home games this season, helping them to ninth in the Western Conference.

Carnell’s side have, however, lost their last two matches, including their most recent home outing, but the head coach is not worried about their recent form.

He said: “The standings are not an indicator of if we give everything or not. Everything should be on the line every single day.

“For sure, there are moments of ebbs and flows through a season, and you get to mitigate through those just like every other team in the league. We’re just focusing on our next game against a respectable opponent.

“We want to see if we can keep up and keep on pushing and turn Citypark into the fortress we know it can become to get three points.”

Seattle sit two points below St. Louis in 10th after failing to win their previous two matches.

Head coach Brian Schmetzer wants his side to use last season’s win over St. Louis as inspiration to get back to winning ways.

“It’s a tough place to play, they were on a good roll last year,” he said.

“This year their results aren’t quite as good, but they’re still a good team. Last year’s performance there away from home was good, it was solid. We scored early goals and held on. Good defence. Solid performance.”
