Result: Sporting Kansas City overcome New York Red Bulls

Aurelien Collin scores the only goal of the game to help Sporting Kansas City leave the Red Bull arena with maximum points.

Sporting Kansas City have gone top of the MLS Eastern Conference thanks to a 1-0 win over New York Red Bulls.

The visitors went ahead in the 13th minute through Aurelien Collin, who found the top corner with a header from Graham Zuzi's corner kick.

Thierry Henry had an opportunity to level the scores just two minutes later, but he was denied by Kansas keeper Jimmy Nielsen.

The Dane was also on hand to prevent Fabien Espindola on the half-hour mark.

Luis Robles was kept busy in the Red Bulls' goal early in the second half, twice saving Paulo Nagamura as Peter Vermes's side threatened to extend their lead.

Juninho Pernambucano tested Nielsen from long range as the clock ticked down, but ultimately the hosts were unable to find and equaliser.
