MLS record goalscorer Landon Donovan found the net for the first time in almost two years as LA Galaxy drew 2-2 with Sporting Kansas City on Sunday.

Donovan came out of retirement this month and, after managing seven minutes as a substitute against Orlando City last week, made his mark at Children's Mercy Park.

Second-half strikes Jacob Peterson and Dominic Dwyer turned things in Sporting's favour after Alan Gordon had opened the scoring for the Galaxy.

But Donovan ensured a share of the spoils 14 minutes from time with a confident low, left-footed finish that took his MLS tally to 145.

Galaxy are second in the Western Conference as they aim to secure a place in the MLS Cup playoffs and contend for a sixth title.

In the Eastern Conference Jozy Altidore scored twice as Toronto came from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with New York Red Bulls at BMO Field and secure a playoff berth.

Steven Beitashour's own goal and a brace from Bradley Wright-Phillips looked to have the Red Bulls on course for victory despite Michael Bradley's effort for Toronto.

But Altidore curled home a fine 68th-minute free-kick to halve the deficit before scuffing home the equaliser for minutes from time to prevent the Red Bulls from leapfrogging Toronto into first place in the conference.
