PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) – Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath is seeing his starting job slip away, with the signing of Algerian netminder Raïs M’Bohli.

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch talk with MacMath about it on this episode of the KYW Philly Soccer Show.

MacMath, who has held down the starting job since the 2012 season, gives some honest answers about the arrival of M’Bohli and the fact that the team used its first-round draft pick this year to get Jamaican keeper Andre Blake.

Then, Kevin Kinkead of Soccer.ly and CBS3 joins the discussion, which shifts to the fact that, despite the tough season, the Union remains within striking distance of a playoff spot.

Moreover, the team is in the semifinals of the US Open Cup and, with a win at FC Dallas next Tuesday, will host the final at PPL Park against either the Seattle Sounders or the Chicago Fire.
