KENYA BROWN - Monday, October 17, 2016
Bjorn Johnsen scored his first goal of the season for Hearts in Scotland, while Cole Grossman and Stabaek continued to fight their way out of relegation in Norway.
Bjorn Johnsen came off the bench to score the goal that got Hearts a 2-0 win over Dundee at Tynecastle.
The game could have gone completely the other way as Dundee had several opportunities to score, but the woodwork would prevent them from celebrating any goals
The Jambos would have to wait until the 68th minute to get on the scoreboard. Callum Paterson would get his head on to a Robbie Muirhead free kick and direct it past Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain.
The home side appeared to settle down after scoring that first goal and Johnsen would come in later on to seal the game in the 89th minute. The Norwegian-American would connect on a low cross from Jamie Walker to guarantee the three points for his team.
