Midtjylland chase Copenhagen
Two goals from Mikkel Thygesen helped FC Midtjylland beat Horsens 2-0 today and claw back some of the deficit on SAS Liga leaders FC Copenhagen. Thygesen struck in the 64th and 87th minutes as Midtjylland consolidated second place in the standings, although they trail FCK by 14 points.
Brondby are third thanks to a 2-1 victory at Esbjerg. Jan Frederiksen and Mike Jensen were on target for the visitors, with Tim Janssen grabbing Esbjerg's consolation. Sonderjyske complete the top four but are three points behind Brondby after slipping to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Silkeborg. Jesper Bech and an Anders Ostli own goal gave the visiting side the advantage, with Quincy Antipas' 89th-minute strike arriving too late for Sonderjyske.
