Playoff positioning is at stake in the Hudson River derby as the New York Red Bulls look to overtake rival New York City FC on the MLS Eastern Conference standings.

The New York Red Bulls host their younger rivals from across the river, New York City FC, in the 2019 MLS season’s initial Hudson River Derby match — a match that sees the two teams jockeying for playoff positioning, as Goal.com notes. The Red Bulls trail NYC FC by a single point on the Eastern Conference table, with the New Jersey-based side sitting sixth to New York City’s fifth place.

It was only Wright-Philips’ third game back in the lineup after missing two months with a groin injury.

“Because I’ve been out for quite a while I haven’t really been thinking of goals. It’s more just trying to play longer than 15 minutes without being really tired,” Wright-Phillips said Saturday, as quoted by Pro Soccer USA. “I think in Atlanta I felt good,
