Red Bulls v Toronto FC

August 21, 2010 — by Sean

Our beloved Red bulls travel north this afternoon to meet a team they beat just two weeks ago. The whistle is scheduled to blow at 1pm, with the winner edging closer to securing a playoff spot—the Bulls can go take their lead over the Canadians to 8 points with a win, while a loss will bring the clubs within 2 points.

There are still 9 games left in the season after this one, but the Bulls’ staff has their eyes on the prize:

“When I look at it, we need to be top two in the East,” coach Hans Backe said. “Time speaks for us. I’m just hopeful we can pick up the points we need to reach the playoffs, because both [Henry and Marquez] will adjust their game in a month or something like that. . . I don’t know the time, but time speaks for us for both players to reach their peak by the playoffs.”
