HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Thierry Henry scored a goal and set up three others and Kenny Cooper had two goals and an assist to lead the New York Red Bulls to a 4-1 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday night, solidifying their chances to earn an Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Markus Holgersson also scored for the Red Bulls (15-8-8), who pulled even with Chicago for second place in the East — five points behind Sporting Kansas City — and improved to 11-1-3 at home.

Ryan Johnson scored in the 6th minute to give Toronto FC (5-19-7) an early lead.

The Red Bulls scored twice in a 14-minute span of the first half to take the lead. Henry hit a perfect corner kick in the 13th minute to the box, where Holgersson headed it home for the equalizer. In the 27th minute, Henry's pretty heel pass set up Cooper for the go-ahead score.
