Bobby Shuttleworth made two critical saves and the New England Revolution tied Real Salt Lake 0-0 on Saturday night.

Shuttleworth deflected a point-blank, one-timer by Kyle Beckerman in the 14th minute, and poked away Yura Movsisyan's breakaway shot with his leg in the 71st. It was Shuttleworth's fourth shutout this season.

Real Salt Lake (8-6-6) had a handful of chances, but came up empty each time. Joao Plata's shot, off a back-heel pass from Juan Manuel Martinez, in the fifth minute sailed high; Martinez's chipped over Shuttleworth, but missed wide left in the 32nd; and Beckerman pulled a shot from the top off the box wide left in the 45th.

Kei Kamara had a goal for New England (5-7-8) nullified in the 50th. He put away a cross from Kelyn Rowe but, seconds earlier, Kamara's foot clipped the heel of, and tripped, Aaron Maund, negating the goal.

Salt Lake is winless in its last five.
