Real Salt Lake coaches and players firmly believe that climbing the MLS ladder again starts with what they do at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Winning 3-0 against Toronto FC is seen by Real Salt Lake as the first step.

"We put ourselves in a little bit of a bad spot and now we got to take full advantage," Real coach Jason Kreis said. "Every home game has to be three points from here on out."

"I wasn't too pleased with the way we came out," Kreis said. "I felt like Toronto was winning most of the 50/50 battles in that first 15 minutes. But then, slowly but surely, we got into it."
