Henrik’s LBoIS climbing up the table


Henrik Larssons LBoIS made in two wins on the bounce yesterday with a 1-0 derby win away to Angelholms.

Morten Nielsen’s 72nd minute goal gave Henke’s BoIs the points and lifted them into sixth place in the Superatten table, five points behind leaders Norrkoping.

LBoIS confidence will be tested on Friday when they host second placed Sundsvall who are only a point in front with twelve points from seven games.

Despite switching into the dug-out, and greying faster than Chris Hughton, Larsson retains the same dry, measured approach to the game as he did as a player when he constantly deflected personal praise towards his team-mates.

After the win over Angelholms he said: “I’m satisfied with the result but we were playing well earlier in the season even when results weren’t going our way. The players know what is required of them.

“We are getting stronger as a team but need to stay focused, we need to work hard to maintain this level of performance.”

Over in Denmark Moten Wieghorst is enjoying the glory of FC Nordsjaelland’s Danish Cup Final win over Midtjylland on Thursday.

The celebrations from the club’s first ever trophy win took their toll away to Esbjerg who raced into a 3-0 lead before being pegged back to 3-3, a result that sees Nordsjaelland finish the season in seventh place.

The 2-0 cup final win was the first national trophy that Nordsjaelland have ever won and earns the club a place in the first qualifying round of the Europa League.

After winning the Cup Wieghorst said: “It’s the first trophy in the club’s history and the first title for most of the players.

“There are definitely areas where we have to get stronger but it’s a question of whether we can afford it.”
