New York City's poor MLS form continued as the New England Revolution ended its winless run with a 1-0 victory.
Brian Wright's second-half goal at Yankee Stadium proved to be the winner for New England, which boosted its play-off chances.
The loss extended City's winless run to four matches as Revolution claimed its first victory since June to move within three points of sixth-placed Montreal Impact in the Eastern Conference.
Wright had already struck the post before scoring his first MLS goal in the 71st minute for Brad Friedel's men.
Cristian Penilla's effort was parried by City goalkeeper Sean Johnson and Wright reacted quickest to tuck away the rebound for the match-winner.
