Stars vs. Puerto Rico: Three Changes From Saturday For Minnesota

The Minnesota Stars, playing for the second time in four days, are making a couple of changes from the lineup that drew 1-1 with Edmonton on Saturday. Connor Tobin comes in for Cristiano Dias in defense, while Nate Plak gets the first start of his young career, up front with regular target forward Amani Walker. In the midfield, regular central midfielder Neil Hlavaty took a shot in a clash of heads Saturday, and will be rested for this game. Michael Reed comes into the team in his place.

For Puerto Rico, the Islanders will make four changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Fort Lauderdale on Saturday. They retain Nicholas Addlery up front; the forward's nine goals this season are good for fourth place on the NASL leaderboard.
