The Red Bulls will play their final home game of the 2012 season on Saturday when they host Sporting KC. New York can lock up an MLS playoff berth with a win in either of their remaining two games, but their first test won't be easy against the Eastern Conference points leaders.
The game got tougher for the Red Bulls with the losses of Wilman Conde and Brandon Barklage, who are both unlikely to go against Sporting KC. Conde will be away from the club for several weeks because of a personal matter, while Barklage is dealing with a foot injury. Speedy midfielder Lloyd Sam, however, is expected back.
It's a golden opportunity for the Red Bulls to deliver on Fan Appreciation Night and secure a 2012 postseason berth. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET, and MSG+ will have the broadcast. If you're unable to get in front of a TV, you can watch a live stream online at MLS Live.
