Emiliano Marcondes scored both goals as FC Nordsjaelland twice came from behind to rescue a point away at FC Horsens in the Danish Superliga on Friday. Alexander Ludwig nodded the home side in front on the hour but the Brentford-bound striker levelled 13 minutes from time, smashing home a loose ball from close range. Kjartan Finnbogason latched on to a long clearance four minutes later to restore the hosts advantage but Emiliano had the final say as his injury-time header crept into the bottom corner. The double takes the 22-year-old’s tally to five goals in eight games for the league leaders ahead of next Monday’s home game against AGF.
In Germany, Konstantin Kerschbaumer couldn’t prevent DSC Arminia Bielefeld sinking to a 4-0 home defeat against MSV Duisburg. Moritz Stoppelkamp put the visitors ahead before the break with Cauly Oliveira Souza’s brace and Kingsley Onuegbu late goal adding to the score after the interval. Konstantin played 80 minutes as DSC slipped to fourth. It doesn’t get much easier as they head to second placed Darmstadt 98 next Sunday.
There wasn’t much action for Brentford’s four youngsters out on loan in the lower leagues of English football with Zain Westbrooke suspended for Solihull Moors’ 1-0 defeat at home to Macclesfield Town while Tom Field was an unused substitute as Bradford City climbed to fourth in Sky Bet League One with a 3-1 victory over Peterborough United.
For the two Bees who did play in Sky Bet League Two, Reece Cole was a first-half substitute as Newport County held Wycombe Wanderers to a 0-0 draw at Rodney Parade while Jack Bonham played the full 90 minutes as Carlisle United were beaten 3-0 away at Accrington Stanley.
Zain remains suspended for Solihull’s trip to Woking tomorrow night but Tom, Reece, and Jack will all be hoping for better as they take on Oxford United, Cheltenham Town, and Coventry City respectively this midweek.
