LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – After handling Saint Louis FC in the club's first home outing last weekend in front of over 6,000 fans, Louisville City travels to Richmond Saturday to take on the Kickers in the team's first away game.

With a win in their pocket, the team now heads to Richmond, Virginia, where City's center back Conor Shanosky played on loan last season. The game is a bit of a homecoming for Shanosky, a native of the DC area.

"I know the players and coaches at Richmond pretty well,” Shanosky said. "Even with a couple of moving parts, they return their core group of guys. They have been very good the last couple of years and this year is no different."

The Kickers finished fourth in the table last season and reached the semi-finals in the playoffs, falling to Harrisburg 3-2.

Richmond comes into the weekend with a 2-2 draw in hand from last weekend's matchup with Wilmington. The Kickers fell behind 2-0, before storming back with 16 shots to equalize with a pair of goals.

Keep your eye on Louisville City's attacking midfielders who played key roles in netting both the team's goals last weekend.

Magnus Rasmussen notched the opener in the first half before Charlie Adams subbed on at halftime to put away the final goal midway through the second half.

Look for a battle in Richmond's backfield between 2009 defender of the year William Yomby and City's pre-season star forward Matt Fondy.
