The last couple of weeks haven't been kind to Charlotte FC, as they suffered a 3-0 home defeat two weeks ago, before losing in extra time last week in New York. The good news is that they start a stretch of home games, starting with Portland this Saturday as The Crown will play 4 of their next 5 games at Bank of America Stadium, a place that is often kind to Charlotte.

With six of their next eight games at home, it's important for Charlotte FC to take advantage to put themselves in the best position possible to make the postseason this year. The homestand got off to a great start with a thrilling 3-2 win over Toronto, headlined by Liel Abada's first MLS goal with Charlotte. The win vaulted FC into the top 8 of the Eastern Conference table, and they are off to their best 8-match start in club history, as they've earned 11 points under new manager, Dean Smith. This week, Charlotte FC steps into the national spotlight, as they'll host Minnesota, the first time they've faced the Western Conference opponent.

After a disappointing result over the weekend at New England, Charlotte FC returns home, looking for a win over Toronto, to get back on track. The return home is a welcome sight, as Charlotte FC will play six of their next eight games at home, a place that FC has only lost once in their last 20 home matches. A big reason for FC's slow start has been the inability to capitalize on the scoring chances that they've created, a sign that they haven't fully adapted to Dean Smith's system.

After a difficult three-game road trip, The Crown returned to the friendly confines of Bank of America Stadium last Saturday, and in the process earned a 2-0 win over the Columbus Crew. The win was just the second of the season for Charlotte FC, but breathed life back into the club, after the lengthy road trip, that followed the season-opening win. At 2-1-2, Charlotte FC finds themselves in the middle of the table in the Eastern Conference, heading into Saturday's home match with FC Cincinnati, the club that sits atop the Eastern Conference.

While many sports fans will be focused on the NCAA Tournament, which officially gets underway starting tomorrow, in the Queen City, that doesn't mean that the sports world will come to a complete stop, as the NBA and MLS will continue their regular season play during over the weekend. The Crown finally return home, after a three-game road trip, that saw the club only earn a point, with two tough losses overlooking a draw. As Charlotte FC returns to The Bank on Saturday, they will meet last year's champion, followed the next week by last year's regular season champion, as the schedule doesn't lighten up for a club that's struggling to put the ball in the back of the net.
