Result: New England Revolution held by Philadelphia Union

New England Revolution miss the chance to go four points clear at the top of the Eastern Conference as they are held at home by Philadelphia Union.

New England Revolution missed the chance to take a four-point lead over the New York Red Bulls at the top of the Eastern Conference as they were held at home by Philadelphia Union.

Revolution began the game in attacking fashion and reaped the rewards when Lee Nguyen was taken down in the box.

The midfielder stood up to take the penalty himself, firing past Andre Blake to give his side the only goal of the first half.

Andrew Farrell snuffed out a Union chance before the half-time whistle, blocking Fernando Aristeguieta's shot to ensure Revolution remained in front at the half.

It was the on-loan Nantes forward who levelled matters for Union in the second half with a near-post finish that Bobby Shuttleworth was unable to keep out.

Jermaine Jones attempted to reinstate Revolution's lead with a 30-yard strike but Blake tipped the effort over his crossbar.

Kelyn Rowe tested the Union keeper moments later but he again stood firm to keep his side on level terms.

Sebastien Le Toux responded with an effort for Philadelphia but Shuttleworth denied the French forward.

An 87th-minute Diego Fagundez strike once again found the target but Blake was equal to the effort as Philadelphia held out to take a point against the Conference's current top side.
