John Herdman had lofty ambitions for Toronto FC ahead of Saturday’s road game vs. Orlando City.  

The English coach talked about this being a big occasion for the Reds, presenting them with a chance to climb into the top four in the Eastern Conference.

Herdman received his wish courtesy of two late goals from substitute Tyrese Spicer and starter Prince Owusu in a dramatic 2-1 comeback win over Orlando at Inter&Co Stadium.  

Toronto (5-4-1) looked destined to suffer its third shutout loss of the season before Spicer scored on a header to equalize in the 87th minute and Owusu’s headed attempt on goal snuck in at the near post in the final minute of regulation time.
