27 minutes into the game, Bödvar Bödvarsson produced a nice assist to locate Mouhammed-Ali Dhaini, who pulled one goal back for the home team.

Before Henry Offia managed to turn things around for the Kristian Haynes side, scoring the equaliser barely a minute before end of first half and made the scoreline 3-2 just a minute into the second.

Henry’s stunning counter attack produced his first goal before beating 3 defenders in the box with one move and still manages to fire it above the keeper’s head at an insanely tight angle.

The 22-year old has already surpassed his tally of 6 goals in 2021 with his well-taken brace to give Trelleborgs the lead for the first time in the game over his former side – Dalkurd FF.

Nicolas Mortensen then made sure the game was beyond reach for the visitors as he sealed the win with the 4th goal before Lukas Minter Wettergren came on to replace Henry Offia in 90th minute.

With the win, Trelleborgs moves to 5th spot with 33 points while Dalkurd FF remain in second bottom of the table with 18 points after 20 games.
