Real Salt Lake will host its U.S. Open Cup game on May 28.

RSL will play the winner of the May 21 contest between the Atlanta Silverbacks, of the North American Soccer League, and the Georgia Revolution, of the National Premier Soccer League.

RSL is 5-80 all-time in U.S. Open Cup play and lost 3-1 to the NASL's Minnesota Stars in the third round of last year's cup. Salt Lake's best finishes came in 2006 and 2011, advancing both times to the tournament's quarterfinals.

Come back

RSL midfielder Enzo Martinez is returning to the team after a short loan to the Carolina RailHawks. Martinez was loaned out to the NASL club earlier this month and scored a goal in his first minutes with the team. The 22-year-old will be back with RSL this weekend and available for a Monday reserve match against Chivas.

Familiar Face

Former RSL goalkeeper Jay Nolly was training with his old team Wednesday.

Nolly, a journeyman who last played for the Chicago Fire, provided an extra body in net for an RSL team that loaned out goalie Jeff Attinella earlier this month.

Nolly played for Salt Lake in 2005 and 2006.
