DAVID SMITH - Tuesday, August 5, 2014
Sebastian Ibeagha and Horsens continued their slow start to the First Division season while Mayowa Alli returned to Vendsyssel's bench for their tough draw in Copenhagen.
AC Horsens 0 - 2 Lyngby BK
Sebastian Ibeagha took up his usual sport in the AC Horsens central defense on Sunday afternoon, as a pair of goals by their visitors Lyngby BK kept the Yellow Danger without a win in the new season.
After more than a half-hour of dominance by the home team, Lyngby scored a rather unexpected opening goal on their hosts in the 34th minute. Lasse Fosgaard sent a long ball down the field which Bror Blume controlled and put away for the 1-0 lead.
Immediately following the halftime break, Horsens were caught off-guard, with a defensive mistake costing them dearly as David Boysen's shot just under the crossbar gave Lyngby the 2-0 advantage just 36 seconds after the restart.
The second goal took the wind out of the Horsens attack, and they never looked capable of mounting a come-back. Lyngby were close to netting a third goal in several occasions as the clock wound down, but the Horsens defense was able to avert any further damage, with the final score ending 2-0 to the guests.
Horsens drop into the midst of the group of five teams sitting on one point near the bottom of the table. They will try to finally notch one in the win column on Friday evening when they visit Skive IK.
Mayowa Alli was an unused substitute for Vendsyssel FF on Sunday afternoon as the team blew a two-goal lead late in the game and was forced to settle for a 2-2 draw at AB Copenhagen.
Babajide Ogunbiyi is still recovering from knee surgery and was not in uniform for Viborg as they came from behind to beat their hosts Køge by a 3-2 score.
