Following the snapping of their 18 games unbeaten run last weekend against Seattle Sounders, the New York Red Bulls search for a home win fell short on Saturday in a 0-0 goalless draw with Real Salt Lake, which arguably is a decent result for RSL under interim manager Daryl Shore. Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Matt VanOekel made three superb saves while starting in place for Nick Rimando, who's on international duty with the US national team. VanOekel best stop on Saturday afternoon came in the 65th minute when he lunged-far-to-his-right to deny Fredik Gulbrandsen's drive on the far post.

While Luis Robles also made an incredible four solid saves for New York Red Bulls, including a “One on One” stop on Yura Movsisyan just minutes into the second-half.

Just minutes to the end of the encounter, Aurelien Collin was sent off due to violent conduct.

Interim coach Daryl Shore satisfactory debut

Last Saturday test at the RBNY's Red Bulls Arena saw Real Salt Lake earning a respectable away result in Daryl Shore's first game in-charge of the team after the dismissal of Jeff Cassar. With this goalless draw, RSL became the third club to secure a draw at the tri-states team Fortress ground - The Red Bull Arena. Despite the injuries and a noticeable absence of number one goalie and Skipper Nick Rimando who's on international duty with the USMNT, Real Salt Lake were able to come out of the game with a vital away point. Perhaps, this decent performance from RSL shows Daryl Shore's coaching tactics was a good fit for the lads to forced the RBNY to a barren draw.

Red Bulls Wasted goal-bound chances

Bradley Wright-Phillips and Fredik Gulbrandsen were in a solid form for the New York Red Bulls but wasted some of their best chances in the game, as Wright-Phillips missed wide on a clear 5 yards header in the 18th minute that would have given the home side the lead.

Later in the 55th minute Fredik Gulbrandsen flubbed-a-near chance to tap-in.

Red Bulls were lucky during the first half

The Red Bulls were quite lucky not-to-be-trailing by RSL at first half, as Sebastian Saucedo struck the left post, and Yura Movsisyan's rebound effort was cleared far wide in the eighteenth minute.

While in the 32nd minute, RBNY goalie Luis Robles brilliantly dived to deny Brooks Lennon chance of making an impact on goal.
