HARRISON, N.J. — Daniel Royer scored his first MLS goal in the 60th minute and the New York Red Bulls clinched a playoff berth for the seventh straight year with a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night.

Royer headed down Chris Duvall’s cross, bouncing it into the right corner. The Austrian international joined New York (13-9-9) on Aug. 3.

Bradley Wright-Phillips’ six-game scoring streak came to an end, but the Red Bulls took a share of the top spot in the Eastern Conference, tied at 48 points with Toronto FC and New York City FC.

Red Bulls captain Dax McCarty returned to the lineup for the first time since suffering a small tibial plateau fracture in New York’s 2-2 draw at Chicago on July 31.

New York extended its club-record unbeaten streak to 13 games. Montreal (9-10-11) remained fifth in the East.
