DAVID SMITH - Friday, October 8, 2010
Babajide Ogunbiyi and Viborg look to continue their turnaround while Benny Feilhaber and Michael Parkhurst will both be in action with the US as their respective teams take a break.
Viborg FF - Brønshøj BK
Having finally earned that all-important win to end their growing slump, Babajide Ogunbiyi will once again work the center of Viborg's defense on Sunday when they try to make it two in a row against visiting Brønshøj.
Viborg are, for the second straight week, facing a team just promoted to the division, and will be pushing for a similar result to last week's 2-0 win over Hobro.
The three points pulled the Greens up just below the surface of the relegation zone with just one point separating them from safety, and a second straight win on Sunday would essentially assure them a place outside of the bottom three.
Their opponents Brønshøj have been respectable in their return season to the First Division after a four-year absence, although their lack of consistency and inability to follow up any of their three wins with another strong performance has left them battling amongst the mediocre pack just below the bottom half of the standings.
Viborg coach Lars Søndergaard will hope to have Razak Pimpong back in the squad after he sat out last week's game with knee issues, and will be without Eldin Karisik as he continues to struggle with health.
Brønshøj are reporting no injuries or suspended players for the game.
Aarhus' regularly scheduled First Division game against FC Fyn has been postponed until Wednesday, October 20 due to a number missing international players. Benny Feilhaber, who is amongst the Aarhus players suiting up for their country during the international break, will return to league action with the rest of his team on October 17 when they host Hjørring.
