Toronto FC lacks explosive firepower without dynamite Altidore

Toronto FC ends a stretch of five games in 15 days Saturday when it faces Real Salt Lake City at Rio Tinto Stadium with a question-mark over key forward Jozy Altidore.

The U.S. international’s finishing touch was sorely missed Wednesday when Toronto launched a club-record 35 shots (13 of which were on target) but had to settle for a 0-0 tie with D.C. United, who had three shots (two on target).

After scoring 18 goals in its first six games (4-1-1), Toronto has scored just four in the last five (1-3-1) and been shut out twice.

Altidore has played just 18 minutes in those five games, due to hamstring and heel problems.
