A draw game at home is rarely satisfactory for Ousman Jallow's Brondby IF, but the weekend battle against Gambian compatriot's side Njogu Demba and OB was a source of great joy.
Njogu Demba's OB took the led in the 30th minute from Andreasen before Utaka came back for them in the 60th for a 2 goal go in front.
The host, Ousman Jallow and Paul Jatta's Brondby came from a two goal deficit within 10 minutes close to stoppage time from a Bruno Batata 82nd and R. van der Schaaf’s 89th minutes, to seal a two all draw for the Superliga sides.
Under the circumstances of the game, Brondby’s weekend draw has helped shift them to 3rd with 11 points, leaving OB on 6th and 8 points on the table.
