Ousman Jallow and compatriot Paul Jatta are faced with the quest to obtain maximum points for their Danish side Brondby IF on Friday, when they travel north to meet with Lyngby FC, in the third last round of the Super League.
The Danish Superliga outfit which is currently sitting in 4th place with 44 points in 30 outings is far from reaching top of the table, which is clearly occupied by FC Copenhagen at 75 points.
Another three points for Brondby tonight will mean they will be on course to the battle to finish in 3rd spot against contenders Midtjylland, who are ahead with 47 points. Jallow and Jatta will look forward to making their 19th and 12th appearances each tonight for the 2010/2011 season.
Assistant coach Kim Daugaard in a chat on brondby.com about Friday's game stressed the importance of getting all three points from strugglers Lyngby.
"First and foremost, we must have three points. Nothing else counts when you are so far in the season. So we have to set the tempo in the match, which means that we get their defensive pressure, get chances and wins."
Having observed that Lyngby is a team with a sound offensive coach, Kim did not rule out some of its talented individualists such as Kim Aabech and Bajram Fetai who are the players whom his team should be constantly aware of - "even when we have the ball".
"We should again focus on our organization, and there must be the right sequence willingness among the players. We have to sacrifice power to run the meter, which means that we are going to be right on track. And we must continue our good second half from Herning with the ball, so we also get three points on Friday," he pointed out.
Brondby will also have other decisive games to settle with Silkeborg next Wednesday before tackling OB on Sunday to ensure a close finish at the top.
