PREVIEW: WEEKEND DANISH ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
DAVID SMITH - Friday, March 19, 2010
Chris Rolfe will hope to continue to get time for Aalborg when they visit last-place Køge while Jamil Fearrington and Roskilde are delayed one more week before beginning their spring fight against relegation .

HB Køge - Aalborg BK

After making his league debut in last weekend's loss to Midtjylland, Chris Rolfe will hope for a longer appearance on Sunday when Aalborg hit the road to face league bottom-feeders HB Køge.

Rolfe played the final 20 minutes of the 2-0 loss, and was able to do little to lift the team from a rather stale overall performance.

The trip to last-place Køge's SEAS-NVE Park on Sunday should provide the team with a much-needed chance to sharpen their claws and try to escape the crowd clogging the middle of the standings.

An ankle injury to main attacking threat Jeppe Curth could pave the way for a starting spot for Rolfe, however American forward Marcus Tracy will not be able to himself benefit from the opening in the lineup as he is still working his way back to health.

Køge look headed for certain relegation back to the First Division after picking up a pitiful eight points through 20 games. They will be without defender Morten Nielsen who is under a red card suspension, but will see the return of his fellow back-line compatriot Thomas G. Christensen, who is returning from his own suspension.

Notes

Michael Parkhurst is still looking for his first appearance of 2010, which he hopes will come on Sunday when Nordsjælland host third-place Esbjerg fB.

Benny Feilhaber is still several weeks away from taking the field after suffering an ankle injury and will watch from the stands when Aarhus try to get over the slump on their trip to second-place Odense on Sunday.

Jamil Fearrington gets to wait one more week before returning to action with Roskilde, as their game on Sunday against FC Vestsjælland has been postponed due to bad weather.

Euan Holden will hope to take the field for Vejle on Saturday when they host a tough second-place Fredericia squad which is gunning for the league lead.

The USMNT classic with Mexico was a tale of two halves, with the U.S. drawing 2-2 with Mexico.
