Can it get worse for Toronto?

[MLS PREVIEW] Toronto, scoreless in the last 732 minutes and winless in nine games, hosts Real Salt Lake.

TORONTO (5-13-5) vs. REAL SALT LAKE (4-13-6)
Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET, Direct Kick


Two teams separated by just two points but headed in different directions meet at BMO Field.

Snubbed in his efforts to sign Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert, who decided instead to play in France for Lille, TFC coach Mo Johnston has no new firepower with which to end his team's record 732-minute scoreless streak.

It hasn't won in the last nine league games, since beating RSL, 2-1, on the Fourth of July with goals by Jeff Cunningham and Collin Samuel. Cunningham (sports hernia) is doubtful for this game; Danny Dichio (ankle) is still out. TFC surrendered two penalty kicks in losing to Dallas, 2-0, last weekend. It squandered a great chance to take an early lead when an Andrea Lombardo shot was cleared off the goal line and Maurice Edu shot the rebound wide.

RSL lost to D.C. United, 2-1, on Thursday and might have been outscored but wasn't outclassed. Three of its wins have come in the last seven games and this is the final game of four straight on the road, where it has yet to win this season.

TFC won its only road game in Salt Lake City; might there be a turnabout in Toronto?
