After clinching the first MLS playoff berth in the franchise's two-year history, the Philadelphia Union visit the New York Red Bulls Thursday night (8 p.m., ESPN 2, ESPN Deportes) with playoff seeding on the line.

The Union (11-7-15, 48 points) are currently tied with Sporting Kansas City for first place in the Eastern Conference, but SKC holds the tiebreaker between the two teams based on goals scored. SKC finishes its regular season Saturday against DC United.

Sebastien Le Toux scored his 10th goal in the past 11 games as the Union tied Toronto FC 1-1 to clinch a playoff berth in front of a record crowd of 19,178 at PPL Park on Saturday. 

"It feels great," said midfielder Freddy Adu, who had a huge smile plastered on his face. "This team has worked so incredibly hard to get here. We deserve this. It's a great feeling of being rewarded for that work. It's not over yet. In the playoffs, anything can happen. We've got to be really ready to play and sharpen up on everything.

"To get here is amazing. I'm just happy to be part of this since I got here. I'm having fun every day with this group of guys. We don't feel like we're done yet."
