PREVIEW: MIDWEEK MEXICAN ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Wednesday, April 13, 2011
Herculez Gomez will be hoping for a repeat of his weekend performance for Pachuca who head to Monterrey to take on Jonathan Bornstein's Tigres in midweek Mexican Clausura action.

Tigres Pachuca

After scoring twice over the weekend, Herculez Gomez should either start or receive a good bulk of minutes for Pachuca who square off against Tigres on Wednesday at Estadio Universitario in Monterrey.

Gomez was the star of Pachuca's emphatic 3-0 win over Jaguares where he came on as a second half substitute and scored two goals in a matter of minutes and assisted on the third.

Compatriot Jose Francisco Torres is suspended and will miss the match due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

Since taking the reins at the Hidalgo club, new head coach Efrain Flores has overcome a rocky start and put together a three match unbeaten streak that includes back-to-back wins over Morelia and Jaguares.

A win on Wednesday would put Pachuca back into the playoff conversation, something that seemed completely far-fetched and impossible just a month ago.

Torrez will be the only absence for the Tuzos while Tigres will be missing the suspended Alberto Acosta and the injured Manuel Viniegra.

Notes

Despite scoring against Toluca on Sunday, Edgar Castillo is expected to start on the bench on Puebla's Wednesday visit to Santos. Adrian Ruelas is also not expected to see time for the hosts.

Daniel Antunez and Sammy Ochoa are unlikely to feature for Estudiantes on Wednesday versus Necaxa.
