Toronto FC coach Nelsen: We still have playoffs shot

Toronto FC coach Ryan Nelsen feels they still have a playoffs shot.

The former Tottenham and Blackburn Rovers defender admits his first season in charge has been a battle.

"Obviously Saturday's match against Philadelphia is a really important game," Nelsen told reporters on Friday. "We know the importance of it. Thank God the East is the way that it is and that we still have a shot. We have to go on a run at some stage."

"With this league, if you win two or three in a row, the whole situation changes," Nelsen added. "The players know that and the coaching staff knows that."
