After a year of absence, Vejle Boldklub is back in the Super League. It happened with a home win over Nykøbing FC.
Vejle Boldklub is back in the country’s best football series.
At home, it turned into a 1-0 victory over Nykøbing FC on Tuesday night on a long-range goal by Ylber Ramadani.
At the same time, Viborg FF did its part to maintain some excitement by winning 4-1 at home over Vendsyssel FF.
But as there are nine points between number one and two in the 1st division, Vejle can no longer be picked up with two rounds left of the season.
For a while, Vejle has looked like the promotion from the second best row. But from the start of the showdown against Nykøbing, it was difficult to spot.
The passes were inaccurate, and there was no real scoring opportunity in the first half, where Vejle coach Constantin Galca was shouting hoarsely.
From the start of the second half, Vejle looked better, and it resulted in a couple of fine draws for chances.
And after 57 minutes, the cheers broke out stadium, when Yannich Storch in Nykøbing’s goal lost Ylber Ramadani’s long shot into his own net. A huge drop by the keeper.
Barely ten minutes later, Mathias Kristensen had a great chance to equalize, but the 201 centimeter tall striker just headed his attempt past goal.
Towards the end, the away team tried to bring more people forward to force an equalizer, but instead it just gave more room for the home team’s offensive forces.
Vejle striker Kjartan Finnbogason was a couple of times close to increasing the lead, but Yannick Storch showed greater vigilance than earlier in the half.
With the 1-0 victory, Vejle can celebrate that promotion to Super League is a reality.
Vejle captain Jacob Schoop was a relieved man after the match was over, and the promotion a reality.
– It is not more than a year ago, we sat and cried in the locker room and held each other, and looked each other in the eyes and said we should go back and it should be as soon as possible. So the feeling of standing here, it is indescribable.
– It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for us, first with promotion, then relegation and now promotion again. Let’s hope that roller coaster ride stops here and we can hold onSuper League, says Jacob Schoop.
