The month ahead would see us compete in just 4 games but with 15 goals coming in those fixtures and the fact that they only pay the equivalent of £3, Its safe to say the fans got value for money.
Overall we were looking better than I had hoped and had yet to taste defeat in any competition. Hvidovre were once again the visitors after our Danish Cup tie victory just 4 weeks prior. Since that night they had improved dramatically and currently sat third in the table.
This would be no walk over.
Fredensborg 2 – 1 Hvidovre
What a way to win a game. 90+3 minutes on the clock when left back Rasmus Mathiesen drives home a 25 yard free kick and sends the 8 dozen Fredensborg fans into melt down. The boys were on cloud 9 and with bottom side B93 up next it looked like the run would continue.
But the run didn’t continue in fact it basically stopped, took its shoes off and gave up running for lent.
In our next game bottom side B93 with only a solitary point twice took the lead through their Nigerian winger Ogude. Both goals coming from corners where my defenders opted to mark themselves rather than the opposition.
With the game coming towards the end our enigmatic striker Alfred Austin was pushed to the ground and the referee pointed to the spot. Instantly my mind was thinking back to training and who won this weeks penalty shoot out, then it dawned on me. I turned to see Bulow, my goalkeeper placing the ball on the spot.
I tried to get a message on to change the taker but Bulow wouldn’t be moved, he took a short run up and smashed the ball home to earn us a point and keep the unbeaten run intact.
Holbaek were tipped to win this Autumn Group 1 but up to date hadn’t really performed. 90 minutes and 6 goals later you could say they had found their feet. Alfred Austin (9 goals in 9 games) was carried off injured and the Alsatian by the dugout was back. It wasn’t a good day.
The month ended with a trip to local rivals Bronshoj where we featured two 16 year old debutantes. The boys performed admirably and a comfortable 2-0 victory was secured without talisman Austin who was still nursing his injured ankle.
Interest had grown ever so slightly in this team and away from the games I couldn’t be happier. As a club we had increased our bank balance to a whopping £12k and slowly started to bring players in to fill our reserve roster.
With only 6 games left of the current fixtures I’m still perplexed as to what happens next. It’s either some sort of winter break or the world ends, By the time I write my next update we should know either way.
