New England have not lost since Bruce Arena took over from Brad Friedel (W6, D4), and Cincinnati, despite a spirited rally towards the end of this evening’s game at Nippert Stadium, were unable to prevent the Revs train from gathering even more momentum.

Goals by DP, Carles Gil (9 mins) and Antonio Delamea (55 mins) proved enough. The Revs now sit level on points with the Impact, with a game less played, the Montreal side retaining sixth spot courtesy of having won more games this season.

Good news followed in the evening’s second game, when the Red Bulls clung on for dear life to repel the best Orlando could throw at them in the second-half.

The New Yorkers had been the superior side throughout the first 45, and led at the interval through Brian White’s sliding strike, getting on the end of an inviting Kaku cross.

Luis Robles however was much the busier of the two ‘keepers in the second-half, yet still had to thank the woodwork three times for coming to his rescue, as Orlando tried vainly to find a leveller.

Orlando in 9th, remains 4 points adrift of the Impact, who now sit a further 4 behind the Red Bulls in 4th.
