Nowak has sights set on 2011 with Philadelphia Union

Philadelphia Union coach Peter Nowak has a big sophomore season planned for the MLS club.

The Union are likely to finish second bottom in the Eastern Conference in their first season despite defeating New York Red Bulls 2-1 on the weekend but Nowak is certain things will be much better in their second season.

“The result was important,” Nowak said. “I think you all know that we play a certain way that is difficult for some teams in the league.

“Today was the final product of what we have been trying to accomplish. The tag of the expansion team is long gone. We’re going to play for more than this next year.”
