FOXBOROUGH — With a playoff appearance still for the taking, the scrambling New England Revolution were on the verge of a victory over the Houston Dynamo after Saer Sene drove home a pass from Lee Nguyen to disrupt a scoreless game in the second half.

But the Revolution couldn’t close it out and had to settle for a 1-1 tie Saturday night before 21,297, the biggest crowd of the season at Gillette Stadium.

With four games to play in the season, New England (11-11-8, 41 points) is sixth in the Eastern Conference and reaching a little desperately for the last playoff spot. Houston (12-10-8, 44 points) holds in fourth, with Philadelphia (11-10-9, 42 points) in fifth. The Revolution are looking for their first playoff berth since 2009.
