The Philadelphia Union begin life after Peter Nowak tonight as they take on arch-rival D.C. United in their first match under interim head coach John Hackworth.
The Union parted ways with Nowak on Wednesday, saying goodbye to the only head coach they ever had. Now the task is up to Hackworth to turn around a disappointing start to the season by molding a young squad into the winning team expected when the season began.
It won't be easy tonight against a strong D.C. United side currently in first place in the Eastern Conference. The recent long MLS break should help D.C. come out strong as Ben Olsen fields a full-strength squad for the first time in more than a month.
