Sandefjord Preview – Can Sandefjord get a first home victory and begin climbing the table?

Sandefjord are four games into their season and they have three points on the board. Their solitary win came against Tromso at the end of May when comfortable winning 3-1. It’s been the only bright spot in an otherwise frustrating season. A home defeat against Mjondalen in their opening game is their heaviest loss of the campaign but they’ve also been beaten by Rosenborg and Valerenga. They were in both of those games for long spells, however, and can be competitive against the bigger teams.

Younger Sander Foss has been the most impressive performer so far for Sandefjord, scoring two goals despite being a defender. He emerged as a regular last season and is now first-choice in his position.

There’s no doubt they’re one of the smaller clubs in the Norwegian top-flight and that success for Sandefjord is essentially staying in the division. They managed that last season having won promotion in 2019, eventually finishing in 11th place which was eight points above the bottom three. They’re under new management this time around, however, with Swede Andreas Tegstrom and Norwegian Hans Erik Odegaard in joint charge. It may well be there is some teething problems in that arrangement.

Having only played four games it would be pointless to make any rash judgements on the new management duo but they know they have to accumulate more points over the coming weeks to save any pressure building.

Molde Preview – Are Molde going to get back to winning ways to keep pace with the leaders?

Molde had an excellent start to the season with three wins in a four match unbeaten start. That included a win over Rosenborg and it was looking very bright for Erling Moe and his players. Moe – who is now in his third season in charge of the club – had led Molde to a title and second place in his first two years – knows the importance of a good start so he’ll be somewhat disappointed by the recent drop off in form.

They’ve taken just one point from their last two games which have seen them lost to Valerenga and manage only a draw away to Mjondalen in their most recent game.

As such, Molde sit in fourth place and three points off the early pacesetters. Another title challenge would have been their ultimate aim but they certainly would see themselves as a top three finishing at the very least, so this is the sort of game where they have to be getting three points from in order to do that.

There’s no doubting who Molde’s most dangerous player is. Ohi Omoijuanfo has scored five in his first six matches including a hat-trick against Brann in a 4-0 win. He’s on course to better the tally of 15 goals he got in Molde’s title winning season two years ago and will have eyes on a career best total (currently 17 with Stabaek).
