The New England Revolution have some serious work in front of them if a playoff spot is in the cards.
New England failed to earn any points last week after falling 1-0 against the Montreal Impact and 2-1 on Saturday against the favored Chicago Fire.
Fernando Cardenas scored in the 11th minute of the match to level the score at one versus the Fire, only to watch Sherjill MacDonald bury his first MLS goal and the game-winner in the 25th minute.
The Revolution is mired in a brutal stretch, seeing how they haven't won a match in their last seven attempts. They currently only rank above Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference with 23 points to Toronto's 20.
Sporting Kansas City is leading the conference with 46 points, followed by the New York Red Bulls and Chicago Fire/Houston Dynamo who have 44 and 41 points respectively.
The San Jose Earthquakes lead the MLS with 47 points to their credit.
