Ex-Man Utd full-back Eckersley maintaining belief in Toronto

Despite losing again, Toronto FC full-back Richard Eckersley says there is still plenty of belief amongst the playing group.

The Canadian outfit lost 1-0 at home to Seattle Sounders on the weekend, after Fredy Montero scored a last-gasp free-kick, to remain second bottom on the Eastern Conference table and extending their winless run to eight matches.

But for all their shortcomings, former Manchester United youngster Eckersley, who is on loan from Burnley, is remaining positive.

"We just have to come Monday back to training, get back to the basics and start again, and get ready for the game Saturday, a big game away. We need to start again and just rebuild," he said.

"Without a doubt (there's still belief). You've seen the way we can play, we are dominating teams, and it's against the run of play really these goals that are coming.

"Once we stop that we can start winning games and go on a run, and who knows where it will take us

"There is positives, we played good football at times, but it doesn't matter because we need to win games. That is the main thing and if we are not doing that, it's no good really."
