FOXBORO — Brad Friedel said Tuesday that last Wednesday night’s 1-0 win over New York City FC at Yankee Stadium should do “a world of good” for the club moving forward, especially as it tries to return above the red line in the Eastern Conference.

Wednesday’s triumph, coupled with NYCFC’s 1-1 draw to DC United, keeps New England (8-10-9, 33 points) in seventh place in the East, three points adrift of sixth-place Montreal, which was idle over the weekend. DC is two points in arrears to the Revs in eighth.

“We’ve been playing well enough in these games over the last couple of months to get three points; the Orlando game, the LA Galaxy game, the Portland game, the Minnesota game … we’ve gone on about games that we should have gotten three points in, but we didn’t,” Friedel said before Tuesday morning’s training session at Gillette Stadium. “Coming away from a game where we probably didn’t deserve all three points is a really good feeling.

“Our second-half performance was pretty solid.
