Player Ratings :
Håkon Opdal 5 Couldn't do much about the goals, but seemed a bit sluggish compared to last year. Some quite bad kickoffs.
Bjørn Dahl 6 One of the better people in defense, but trailed a bit behind the others when trying to trap opponents in offside. Had pretty good control on Barson and had several good raids down the right wing.
Olafur Örn Bjarnason 4 Need to shape up to keep Karadas on the bench.
Kristjan Örn Sigurdsson 6 Love his fighting spirit, and his pace saved us several times. Had trouble marking the FFK attackers, but won pretty much every duel.
Erlend Hanstveit 5 Decent game, no big mistakes in defense and came forward to help out PVM several times. Also had a great shot on goal.
Jan Gunnar Solli 6 Maybe our best player in the first half, not so good in the second. Blocked off Wallace coming forward almost completly, and had some great raids. The shots and passes aren't quite there yet.
Eirik Bakke 5 Solid performance and great fighting spirit. Lost a bit too many duels, but never wanted to stop playing, despite having his head bandaged up and a large visible gash in the shin. Gotta love him.
Hassan El Fakiri 2 Shouldn't have played this soon after his injury. Only had two practices with the team before starting. Gave the ball away too soon, kept passing to marked players and fell off too deep. Improved a bit in the second half, especially right before being taken off the field.
Petter Vaagan Moen 6 A constant threat and had several good corners. Had several hard fights with Ophaug, but gave as good as he received. Great passes to Helstad, seems they'll be good together once they sort out the timing.
Robbie Winters 3 A bit disappointing. Was mobile, but didn't accomplish much. Managed to drag some defenders away from Helstad, but not in the right moments. Will lose his spot next game when the Demba is back from suspension.
Thorstein Helstad 8 Proves why he's the best striker in the league. 3 goals despite missing on his biggest chance. The first was a brilliant solo job, the second a corner and the third showed great vision and timing to avoid the offside trap. Amazing player.
Azar Karadas (For Winters 58') 6 A huge improvement on Winters. Won lots of duels with the defenders, scored a goal and had an assist on Helstad's last goal. A shame he wants to play CB.
Gylfi Einarsson (For Bakke 70') 5 Did alright, could have scored and filled Bakke's position well. Seems more dangerous going forward than Bakke. Very uplifting performance.
Cato Guntveit (For El Fakir) 87') Didn't play enough to get a good impression of him. Played on the average, but did a good job talking to the teammates, organizing them better defensively to keep FFK locked down towards the end. I'm happy with him.
