Toronto FC vs. Austin FC: 3 takeaways

It's going from bad to worse for Toronto FC with each match in MLS.

A short-handed TFC side that was missing 10 players due to injury or suspension saw their winless run extended to four matches with a 1-0 loss away to Austin FC on Saturday.

Austin’s Gyasi Zardes scored in injury time to deny the Reds what would’ve been a very valuable point on the road. As a result, Toronto (2-5-7) remains at the very bottom of the Eastern Conference table and has just one victory in 11 contests in all competitions.
