Result: Sporting Kansas City, Real Salt Lake play out draw

The MLS clash between Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake ends in a goalless draw despite the home side being reduced to 10 men.

Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake played out a goalless draw in their MLS match at Sporting Park.

Salt Lake started the game strongly and could have taken the lead in the second minute when Javier Morales threaded a ball through for Olmes Garcia, who fired an effort just over the bar.

Kansas City responded and the visitors were grateful to keeper Jeff Attinella for keeping them level, as he rushed out to deny Dominic Dwyer with a good save.

Attinella was forced to make another great save minutes later when Dwyer teed up Seth Sinovic to strike from the edge of the area, but the keeper tipped his powerful shot over the bar.

The visitors were having to endure a lot of pressure and Attinella was forced into action yet again, this time to stop Benny Feilhaber's volleyed effort from finding the bottom corner.

After the break, Sporting kept up their assault on the Real goal and Graham Zusi should have given them the lead as he raided into the box, but from close range he put his left-footed shot wide.

The home team came their closest to finding the net when Dwyer beat the offside trap and rounded Attinella, but from a tight angle his shot hit the post and was cleared by the Salt Lake defence.

Kansas City's frustrating match got worse when Oriol Rosell was given a straight red card for a late challenge on Devon Sandoval, reducing them to 10 men for the last seven minutes.

However, Salt Lake couldn't make their advantage count and the match ended in a draw.
