Result: Philadelphia Union held by Houston Dynamo

Philadelphia Union's MLS playoff chances are dealt a blow as they are held to a 0-0 draw by Houston Dynamo.

Philadelphia Union did their quest for an MLS playoff spot no favours after playing out a goalless draw with Houston Dynamo.

The hosts tried to forge a lead in the first half with Sebastien Le Toux, Maurice Edu and Conor Casey all squandering chances to break the deadlock.

Giles Barnes proved a constant threat to the Philadelphia defence and had a number of chances to score before the interval, but failed to make the important breakthrough.

Less than a minute after the restart, Union came close to breaching the Dynamo defence when Casey unleashed a shot that was saved by keeper Tyler Deric down to his right.

Barnes then wasted an excellent chance to give Houston the lead when he met a Brad Davis corner, but his close-range effort was high and wide.

Houston nearly punished the Philadelphia's wayward shooting when Omar Cummings flashed a late effort inches wide of the Union goal.

In the end, both side had to settle for a point and the result leaves Union behind fifth-placed New York Red Bulls in the Eastern Conference and outside of the playoff positions with time running out in the regular season.
