Toronto FC came from behind to defeat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-2 in Wednesday’s MLS action.

In a rare battle between two Canadian sides it was Toronto, statistically the worst team in the entire competition, who entered the match as underdogs as they took on an impressive Whitecaps side.

In stark contrast to their opponents, Vancouver sat fourth in the Western Conference and knew that even a draw could put them ahead of the Seattle Sounders.

After a goalless first half at BMO Field in Ontario, Toronto, Jamaican forward Darren Mattocks put the visitors in front on 50 minutes.

Mexican Luis Silva produced a response for Toronto after 69 minutes and just moments later German Torsten Frings fired them in front.

Vancouver looked like they had claimed a point when Mattocks scored his sixth goal in as many games, one minute into additional time.

But there was still time for a winner and Toronto midfielder Terry Dunfield – who spent two years at Vancouver before joining his current club – netted it in the 95th minute.

New Toronto FC boss Paul Mariner took over from Aron Winter in early June and the Englishman has overseen two victories, four draws and two losses since his arrival.
