READING, Pa. -

The Reading United will host the Long Island Rough Riders on Friday night in a key divisional showdown for both teams.

The United and Rough Riders are among the top five within the Mid Atlantic Division of  the Premier Development League. In fact, both are tied for second place in a hotly contested divisional race.

With less than two weeks of regular season left, there is an enormous amount of pressure on both teams heading into Friday.

Reading and Long Island tied in their first meeting, a game which the United feel they should have won. If they can prevail on Friday, the three points would be huge in solidifying a spot for Reading in the postseason.

Friday night's game will start at 7:00 at Exeter's Don Thomas Stadium.
