Patrik Gunnarsson earned his first win in a Viking FK shirt in midweek as he helped them to a 3-1 win over Rosenborg in the Third Round of the Norwegian Cup.
The first goal came from Kristoffer Løkberg before Yann-Erik de Lanlay then added a second. The away side pulled a goal back on the hour, but Zlatko Tripić confirmed the win with a strike 11 minutes from time. Next up for the side is an away trip to Molde in the league on Sunday.
The only other player to have tasted midweek action was Aaron Pressley for AFC Wimbledon. In their way stood a tough trip to the Emirates Stadium in the Carabao Cup and the League One side were beaten 3-0 on the road. Arsenal progressed with goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Emile Smith-Rowe and Eddie Nketiah. Aaron did take to the field as he played the final 36 minutes but The Dons will now have their sights firmly set on a trip to Shrewsbury Town in the league this weekend.
As for the rest of the upcoming action, staying in League One, Ellery Balcombe’s Burton Albion will host Lincoln City as they look to climb further up the table with the side currently sat 10th in the division.
In Sky Bet League Two, Alex Gilbert will be aiming for more minutes when Swindon Town host Colchester United. Alex has had a bright start to life at the County Ground and he will be hoping to inspire the club to victory this weekend.
In Scotland Jaakko Oksanen will be looking to build more minutes after featuring for 90 minutes twice so far for Greenock Morton. The side will be aiming to return to winning ways after a defeat last time out as they travel to take on Ayr.
Finally in Turkey, Halil Dervişoğlu missed Galatasaray’s midweek defeat to Kayserispor. The side were beaten 3-0 away from home and currently sit 11th in the Turkish Super Lig. Next up for them is a home math with Göztepe S.K.
