CHICAGO (CBSNewYork/AP) — Luka Stojanovic returned to the starting lineup and scored two early goals to help the Chicago Fire beat the New York Red Bulls 2-1 on Sunday.

Stojanovic, who had been a reserve the previous seven games, blasted a right-footer from 22-yards outs that slipped inside the post to open the scoring in the second minute. His volley in the eighth minute gave the Fire a 2-0 lead.

Chicago (4-9-5) snapped a five-game winless skid dating to a 3-1 victory over Orlando City on July 7.

The Fire kept their fourth clean sheet of the season, and their second in a row.

Tom Barlow scored off a rebound of a saved direct kick in extra time for the Red Bulls (5-8-4), who are winless in their last six games.
