Orlando City to play final home game with playoffs on the line

-
The Orlando City Soccer Club has a big home match Friday night.
 
It's the last home game of the year and the post season is on the line. 
 
The Lions are going to have to make do without two of the team's star players: Kaka and Brek Shea. Both players picked up yellow cards in the winning match against Montreal.
  
The Lions will play New York City F.C. at the Citrus Bowl. Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m..
 
It's a must win game for the Orlando City Soccer Club.
 
In the playoff race, the Lions are on the outside looking in because they're four points behind Montreal.
 
Both teams have two games remaining.
 
A win Friday would keep Orlando City's playoff hopes alive and as our news partners at the Orlando Sentinel have reported it would also give the lions a chance to finish as the winningest expansion team in MLS history.
 
Two other players likely to be absent from tonight's lineup are Rafael Ramos and Tommy Redding.  
 
They're both dealing with concussion-related issues after a head-to-head collision during the last minute win against Montreal.
 
We’ll have all highlights on FOX 35 News at 10:00 p.m.
