David Villa is in contention to return for NYCFC’s road game at Colorado Rapids.
The team’s leading scorer sustained an injury on international duty but is now in line to return at DSG Park on Saturday evening.
Elsewhere, Alex Ring is rated as “questionable” for the Boys in Blue after missing the last two games with the toe injury which he also picked up on international duty.
The Costa Rican was working with a ball once again in training this week following his fracture and will be hoping to return before the postseason.
For Colorado, only Bobby Burling is on the MLSSoccer.com’s Injury Report as the Western Conference outfit aim to climb off the bottom of the standings with a win.
OUT – Camargo, Chanot, Herrera, Lopez, Matarrita, White
QUESTIONABLE - Ring
OUT - Bobby Burling
These clubs have met only twice so far, and New York City FC have gone unbeaten in those matches with one win and one draw. The tie, a goalless affair, came in the sides' previous meeting at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in 2015.
- Overall: Colorado 0 wins (1 goal), New York City 1 win (5 goals), 1 draw
- At Colorado: Colorado 0 wins (0 goals), New York City 0 wins (0 goals), 1 draw
