The Montreal Impact will play another away game this Wednesday. They will face the Puerto Rico Islander at Estadio Juan Ramon Loubriel, in Bayamón at 7:30 p.m. ET. Live streaming of the game can be fond at http://www.prislandersfc.com/.

Last Saturday, the Impact's consecutive games without a goal streak was snapped at 339 minutes.

The Impact will look to get back on the winning track with only four NASL games left. The club is only four points away from the final playoff spot. Montreal currently has 25pts while the Minnesota Stars have 29.

The Impact is also six points behind the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and eight points behind FC Edmonton. Both teams will play at home tomorrow.

Impact head coach and sporting director, Nick De Santis, is staying back in Montreal due to personal reasons and has given the head coaching duties to Mauro Biello for this game.

"The atmosphere is good and the players are hungry to perform after a deceiving result in Fort Lauderdale,” Biello told the team's official website. “We are still on the quest for the playoffs and we are focusing on what we can control. We will try to do the best possible collectively and individually to win that game.”

Coming into this match-up, the Islanders sit second in the NASL table with 45pts. The Impact and Islanders have drawn once and split the other two contests thus far in 2011.
