Taking a point on the road is always difficult, but the New York Red Bulls thought they could have come away with all three in Toronto.

Head Coach Gerhard Struber said he loved the energy in the first half, but wanted to see a goal or two from his side.  

"We have, right now, a higher level and higher expectations," Struber said.

New York got off to a quick start in the second half, scoring within moments of the whistle, but again gave up a lead late to drop points.

"I can feel a team on the field, they are ready with the right quality to win this game, but we are not ready right now, in this game, to bring 90 minutes an attitude against the ball what is necessary," Struber said. "This makes me a little bit unhappy."

Forward Patryk Klimala, who scored for New York, said he was disappointed in his performance.

"We should have won this game, and I think I should have scored a minimum of two goals," Klimala said. "I had two or three situations when I tried to score a goal and I just got one."

The Red Bulls are unbeaten in four matches, with a win and three draws. The team is also unbeaten on the road in three straight matches.

"When we think right now of our next opponent, D.C. United, we need everyone with our identity from the first to the last second, on the same page, with an outstanding attitude and then we can win away, but when some players cannot on his personal limit then we are not ready for three points," Struber said. "This is today, not so sexy."
