Fredrikstad - Rosenborg 1-4
By Endre Bakken, 27 August 2009, 16:46

The first victory in Fredrikstad in five years increased Rosenborg's lead to ten points.

It was a hard game, but the difference between us and them is that we create more chances and score more goals. Fredrikstad are a better team than you'd think from reading the league table, and they play well. We had to work hard in defense to keep them away. I'm happy we won 4-1," Erik Hamrén told TV2.

RBK controlled the first half, but struggled with creating opportunities to score until Rade Prica sent the ball into the underside of the bar after half an hour.

Vadim Demidov was allowed to continue on the midfield after playing well the last time, and gave Rosenborg the lead right before the break when he controlled a pass from Mikael Lustig into the net after having dribbled his way past two defenders in an earlier phase of the attack.

Prica decided the game with a diving header in the top corner 40 seconds into the second half. Then Fredrikstad-debutant Daniel Wass fouled Steffen Iversen, and the latter securely scored on the following penalty.

Raio Piiroja created some excitement with a goal, but Prica increased the lead right after, the way a true goalgetter does: He sent the ball past his man, ran on his side and shot into the goal.

Rune Jarstein had to leave with an injury in his left hand. His finger was dislocated by a Fredrikstad foot. Luckily Alexander Lund Hansen had recovered from his thigh injury. The back-up goalie got his third game and is therefore eligible for a medal.

With 21 consecutive games without losing Rosenborg has equaled Molde's 1998 record.

"It is impressive. In the last eleven games we have won ten and one ended in a draw. That is pretty good," Hamrén said.
