2012 MLS Standings: Union Continues To Look Up In Eastern Conference

The Philadelphia Union has had a tough season in 2012. Unfortunately, the disappointment continued on Saturday with a scoreless draw against the listless New England Revolution.

In fact, the Union hasn't won a match since July 29 when they beat New England, 2-1, at PPL Park. Philadelphia now has gone six matches without a win, leaving it desperately out of the playoff race in the MLS Eastern Conference.

The Union only has nine matches remaining on their schedule, with the next one coming on Sept. 15 against Toronto FC.

Here are the current playoff qualifiers in the Eastern Conference (if season ended today):

  1. Sporting Kansas City 50 points
  2. New York Red Bulls 46 points
  3. Chicago Fire 44 points
  4. Houston Dynamo 42 points
  5. Columbus Crew 42 points

D.C. United and the Montreal Impact are both still in contention for a playoff berth, with the clubs only one and three points behind the Crew. However, D.C. has played one more contest while the Impact have played three more.

The Union is all but finished with just 26 points and in eighth place.

In the Western Conference, the San Jose Earthquakes have the most points of any team in the MLS with 53.
