HAMAR / OSLO (VG) (HamKam – Lillestrøm 1–1) With Ståle Solbakk (52) in the stands, HamKam took on the role of party brake. Now, the end of the season could be worrisome for Lillestrøm.
A win at Briskeby would have been enough to secure promotion to the Elite Series for LSK, but Kjetil Rekdal wanted it in a different way.
Ståle Solbakken, the new director of the Norwegian national team, sat in the stands and Kristian Eriksen saw the host send the leader.

“I think we’re a little excited,” Eriksen told VG.
Solbakken played for HamKam from 1989 to 1994, before continuing his career at Lillestrømen in 1997. He was also the coach of Gruesokning’s HamKam from 2002 to 2005.
Now Kjetil is headed by Rekdal. Former coach Våler has taken on HamKam from the hopeless situation of the bottom of the Obos league.
“Maybe we should have someone who took good care of us,” Markus Solbakken, Ståle’s son, told VG.
For a long time it seemed that HamKam would take a step towards the standings, but eight minutes before the full time Tryggvi Hrafn Haraldsson equalized for the outside team.
– The end of the game is a bit boring. Lillestrøm is making good progress, but there are two teams that have been good this fall, says Kristian Eriksen.
This means that Lillestrøm needs only one point to secure promotion.
Sogndal have a six-point lead, but two games are left and Lillestrøm are two points behind.
Ull / Kisa (away) and Åsane (home) are the two remaining games in Sogndal, and Lillestrøm ends up at home against Grorud in the final round of the series.
