Current record: 8-8-5, 29pts
OKC Energy is coming in to this match off an impressive win, as they stunned Real Monarchs with a 2-0 win on Saturday.
Both goals on that occasion were scored by Alex Dixon, earning him a USL Team of the Week nod along with defender Kyle Hyland, who had a big contribution in OKC keeping a clean sheet in the match.
It could have been even better for the Energy if not for Andy Craven failing to score from the spot, forcing OKC Energy to settle for the 2-0 win.
That result kept the undefeated streak going for OKC, coming in to this game five games without a loss.
This will be the second black gold derby of the year with Tulsa winning the first, in Oklahoma City 2-1.
