Luis Robles made four saves to help the New York Red Bulls preserve a 0-0 MLS tie with Real Salt Lake Saturday in Harrison, N.J.
The Red Bulls (2-1-1) were without Sacha Kljestan, who was called up to the U.S. men's national team this week by coach Bruce Arena.
It was Salt Lake's first game under coach Daryl Shore. He took over for Jeff Cassar, who was fired on Monday, just three games into the season. Real Salt Lake (0-2-2) was averaging 2.3 shots on target per game, the third-lowest total in the league, and has scored just once this season. But five of 12 Salt Lake shots were on target Saturday.
Salt Lake goalie Matt Van Oekel had three saves on 18 Red Bulls shots.
Salt Lake was without star midfielder and team captain Kyle Beckerman, who was suspended for the match. Beckerman picked up two yellow cards last week against the Los Angeles Galaxy, earning the automatic suspension.
The Red Bulls had their 18-match unbeaten streak in the MLS regular season snapped by Seattle last Sunday. New York has the best home record in the league at 76-24-19 (247 points) since Red Bull Arena opened in 2010.
Under head coach Jesse Marsch, the Red Bulls own an impressive 28-6-5 home record.
