Real Salt Lake City move nine points clear at the top of the MLS Western Conference thanks to a 4-2 victory over the Portland Timbers.

Real Salt Lake have extended their lead at the top of the MLS Western Conference with a 4-2 demolition of the Portland Timbers.

The Royals now have a nine-point cushion over Caleb Porter's men and Los Angeles Galaxy, who are both level in second place on 40 points.

Joao Plata supplied Luis Gil to open the scoring in the ninth minute, before getting in on the act six minutes later.

The visitors grabbed one back through Darlington Nagbe, but they were forced to play the second half a man down after Ben Zemanski was dismissed for a foul on Ned Grabavoy.

Salt Lake's third goal was all down to Javier Morales, who beat Donovan Ricketts with an overhead kick from Plata's corner.

The Argentine then turned creator himself as Alvaro Saborio headed home a free kick to make it 4-1 in the 67th minute.

Sal Zizzo reduced the deficit with 12 minutes remaining but it proved to be little more than a consolation goal.
