Philadelphia Union were the width of a post away from victory but had to settle for a goalless draw with Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer.

Substitute Antoine Hoppenot almost made a late breakthrough at PPL Park but hit the outside of the left post in stoppage time.

Salt Lake remain second in the Western Conference, with Philadelphia looking destined to miss out on the post-season in the East, standing 15 points adrift of fifth-placed DC United.
