AaB wins to put pressure on Midtjylland

AaB, chasing its first Danish title since 2008, opened up a three-point lead at the top of the Superliga standings with a 4-2 comeback victory over Nordsjaelland.

Five of the six goals came during a frantic first half, which saw Anders Jacobsen (24 and 29) and Kenneth Emil Petersen (44) net for AaB in reply to efforts from home duo Anders Christiansen (nine) and Joshua John (31).

The only goal of the second period saw Kasper Kusk's 65th-minute strike seal the win for AaB as it moved clear of Midtjylland, which is in action on Friday morning (AEST).

Esbjerg also fought back from a goal down before beating relegation-battling Sonderjyske 2-1.

Sonderjyske had picked up seven points from its previous three games and it looked set to take another large step towards survival when Rubin Okotie put it ahead in the 25th minute, but Esbjerg drew level through Martin Pusic on the stroke of half-time before substitute Casper Nielsen netted an 84th-minute winner for the host.
