After losing playmaker Miguel Almiron on Sunday night to a hamstring injury for at least three weeks, others will need to step up if Atlanta United are to continue climbing up the Eastern Conference table. 

The Five Stripes proved capable of continuing wins this weekend, pulling out a 2-0 victory over the Montreal Impact, despite the 23-year-old Paraguayan's exit after only 17 minutes. 

In Philadelphia, they face a side that is all but eliminated from playoff contention. Still, the Union retain the potential to claim a big scalp, as they did in Saturday's 3-1 home win over the Chicago Fire.
