Toronto FC concede late in road loss to Austin FC

An injury time goal by Gyasi Zardes denied TFC a valuable point and extended their MLS winless run to four games.

Toronto FC concede late in road loss to Austin FC
  • Toronto FC 0, Austin FC 1 (Zardes 90’+1’)
  • TFC winless in 4 MLS games, goal-less in 404 minutes
  • 10 players missing for Reds in Texas, including Insigne

Goals and wins continue to be very hard to come by for an injury-plagued Toronto FC.

TFC was shut out for a fourth straight time in MLS on Saturday in a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Austin FC at Q2 Stadium in the first ever meeting between the clubs.

Austin’s Gyasi Zardes scored in injury time off a mad scramble inside the penalty area to deny Toronto what would’ve been a valuable point on the road.

Toronto (2-5-7) has just one victory in 11 contests in all competitions – winless in four straight in MLS – and remains rooted to the very bottom of the Eastern Conference table. With just two wins from their previous 20 MLS outings (2-10-8), TFC have now gone 404 minutes without a goal – their longest scoring drought since going four consecutive league matches without a goal from August to September 2010.
