Jaiteh's Randers in death zone

May 27, 2011, 3:00 PM | Article By: Sainabou Kujabi-Njie

With a single game to play in the Danish Superliga, Tijan Jaiteh's Randers are facing a huge battle for survival in Sunday's league game against Esbjerg.

Randers were tightly competing  to avoid falling away to  relegation  together with AaB  and Lyngby being potential candidates, but Randers slipped through when they dropped two points to Midtjylland in Wednesday's 2-2 deadlock.

The fall-back for Jaiteh and his Superliga side has sent them 11th on the table with 33 points, a single point behind their Sunday's end-game opponents Esbjerg, all falling in the same trap.

Randers will need a miraculous performance in their favour if they win Sunday's game and wait on the results from competitors AaB  and Lyngby.

A slip from any of the two will surely go in their way. As in the 2009/2010 season, Randers had a narrow escape from relegation with just two points clear and finishing on 10th.


Also in  the  Superliga, following Thursday's 1-1 draw against Nordsjælland played by both Ousman Jallow and Paul Jatta, Brondby need to beat mid-table occupants SønderjyskE on Sunday to fully cement their third spot and secure a possible Europa league ticket, which is closely been contended by Midtjylland.
