Prediction: HFX 2 Valour 1
It's hard to ignore history. Valour have NEVER followed a win with anything but a loss and their last match was a win. Valour have a habit of bitting the shed just when it looks as though they have turned a corner. Thomas and Murrell are back at CB. HFX are 3-0-0 vs. Valour at home. HFX are good against almost everyone else at home too. I'm sorry to say it, but it all adds up to a win for HFX.
Agreed. That Cavalry match was an object lesson for a rookie coach. Cavalry came in with a point to prove after that late pen denied them the win last time they visited IGF. They physically dominated Valour and if you can do that you will win every time and sometimes big. Valour have quite a few pretty players but every successful team also needs some steel and Valour do not have it. I've never heard of a professional football team losing 8-0 AT HOME before. That is a first for me.
