New York moved into a three-way tie for first place in the east following a comprehensive 4-1 win over the Houston Dynamo last Sunday at BBVA Compass Stadium. Red Bulls Thierry Henry and Jonny Steele each had a goal and an assist as New York earned their fifth road victory of the  year and moved to 45 points off a 13-9-6 record. The Red Bulls are equal on points with Sporting Kansas City and the Montreal Impact, which both won over the weekend. The first-place trio is six points ahead of the fourth-place Philadelphia Union.

Toronto FC currently has 23 points and a 4-13-11 record this year and most recently fell to the Portland Timbers at JELD-WEN Field, 4-0, last
Saturday and tied the Chicago Fire at home, 1-1, on Wednesday, with team leading scorer Robert Earnshaw finding the back of the net for the hosts. Under first-year head coach Ryan Nelsen, Toronto FC is in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.

New York has recently controlled the series against its Canadian rival, going unbeaten in its last nine in regular season play (6-0-3 record). In this span, New York has scored 23 goals compared to Toronto FC’s five.

This year, the Red Bulls are 1-0-1 versus Toronto FC, defeating the Reds 2-1 on April 27 and tying 0-0 on July 20. Both of those matches were played at BMO Field. All-time, the Red Bulls are 9-4-4 all-time against Toronto FC and 6-1-0 at home, including 3-0-0 at Red Bull Arena.
