Two struggling teams at the bottom of the Eastern Conference table clearly could not find some flow within their play on Thursday.

The Chicago Fire and last-place Sporting Kansas City played to a scoreless draw as K.C. opened up Livestrong Sporting Park in front of a sold-out crowd of 19,925 in Kansas City, Kan.

Chicago (1-4-8) saw its team-high winless streak reach 11 games (0-4-7), and Sporting (1-6-4) had to play down a man for a half hour to salvage the draw.

"When we were a man up, we could have done a little better in the final third," Fire interim head coach Frank Klopas said. "I thought we were predictable with the ball. Our movement wasn't great. We could have been a little bit sharper."
