Brilliant Blake earns Philadelphia a point at the Red Bulls

SoccerNews in MLS 17 Sep 2017

An inspired Andre Blake ensured Philadelphia Union held New York Red Bulls to a 0-0 draw in MLS, but the result did little to boost the play-off hopes of Jim Curtin’s men.

Jamaica international Blake made save after save at Red Bull Arena, notably parrying Derrick Etienne’s powerful strike and blocking Bradley Wright-Phillips’ close-range finish.

The goalkeeper contributed eight stops in all as New York were held despite mustering 16 shots to the Union’s six.

Neither side hugely benefited from a point, however, with the Red Bulls in sixth – the final play-off place – while Philadelphia remain nine points off the pace with just five games remaining.
