Sports Mole previews Saturday's Major League Soccer clash between New York City FC and Toronto, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Fresh off the back of picking up their first league win of the season last time out, Toronto travel to the Yankee Stadium on Saturday to take on New York City FC.

Meanwhile, the hosts have bounced back from an opening day defeat, and they are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak.

Match preview

New York City FC were denied a third consecutive win as Orlando City SC held them to a 1-1 stalemate on Saturday.

Ronny Deila's men went behind shortly after the restart to Luis Nani's opener, but Valentin Castellanos kept his cool from 12 yards in the 77th minute to level matters.

The Pigeons currently sit seventh in the MLS table following that draw and would move into second place should they manage to claim all three points in their next outing.

Recent matches involving Saturday's opponents leaves little to choose between them with the last four meetings yielding two wins apiece.

However, the hosts have not won any of their last three home games against the visitors, which is something they would be aiming to change come the full-time whistle.

Toronto FC opened their account for the season with a 2-0 triumph over Columbus Crew at the Exploria Stadium on Thursday.

Goal in either half from Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore were enough to hand Chris Armas's men a much-needed three points.

The Reds will now be looking to kick on from that win and move into the top half by claiming a second victory on the trot.

Their last visit to New York was less than a week ago which ended in a 2-0 defeat against New York Red Bulls, and they will be hoping for a better outcome this time around.
