Kristiansund suffered another defeat, this time away in Trondheim against Rosenborg (3:1). They remained at the bottom of the standings with only 1 point after 9 matches, having two matches less than the other teams, due to the two postponements they had before the break. In midweek, they didn’t play the scheduled Cup match against Viking, as the match was postponed due to a problem with the flight.
Lillestrom „slap” in Drammen, and lost the first match of the years against Stromsgondget (3:0). That was an average appearance, where they stayed with player less in the 82nd minute. They remained at the top of the standings, two points above Molde, but now having a match more. In the midweek, they qualified to the 1/8 finals in the Cu, beating Aalesund 1:0 at home. Only absence is suspended midfielder Gjermund Asen (11/0).
Kristiansund is in bad shape, last in the standings, with just one point and defensive performances that don’t leave much space for optimism. Lillestrom after last week’s defeat is expected to be focused and serious, and come back on the winning ways.
