Orlando City chases vital points during road match against San Jose Earthquakes

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- With six games left in the season, the margin of error has tightened for Orlando City, ratcheting up the pressure for Saturday's road match against the San Jose Earthquakes.

During the Lions' past two road games, the team has taken one-goal lead in the second half only to cede a late goal off an error to force a draw. Against San Jose, Orlando City will be desperate to avoid a repetition of this pattern in order to secure critical points in the race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Lions sit two slots below the postseason cutoff with 34 points.
