Vejle-boldklub FC goalkeeper Nathan Trott had a string of great saves in the home game against Viborg, and it was especially in the 2nd half that the goalkeeper kept his team in the game.
Shots both inside and outside the field were handled by Trott, who stood in the way every time the green shirts approached. Only when great Anosike Ementa shot a quarter of an hour before time, Trott had to surrender and VFF equalized for the final score of 1-1.
The effort from Trott meant that Vejle Music Theatre, today's match sponsor, in consultation with Malte Ebert, voted Trott as Vejle Boldklub's best in the divider. Subsequently, he received a gift from Vejle Music Theatre, sponsored by the same.
Djair Parfitt-Williams would score helping his Ilves teammates win. Ilves came from behind to defeat FC Lahti 5 – 1 on the road, V Huovila gave Lahti the lead in the 20th minute but Ilves equalized in the 31st minute when Santeri Haarala scored, Oiva Jukkola gave Ilves the lead in the 41st minute before Haarala added his second in the 44th minute as they took a 3 – 1 lead to the break.
Parfitt-Williams would add his name to the scoresheet for the 6th time this season in the 72nd minute to make it 4 – 1, and then Lauri Ala-Myllymaki made it 5 – 1 in the 86th minute. The win sent Ilves to second place in the standings.
