Philadelphia will take the field on Saturday with a new manager on the sideline, as John Hackworth takes over for Peter Nowak. The Union are currently on a five-game winless streak, having most recently lost in league play to Toronto FC three weeks ago. Nowak now holds the unique distinction of having been fired by both Philadelphia and D.C.
