With Stephen Odey out, the forward took advantage of the opportunity to score, leading Randers to a 2-2 stalemate against AaB at Cepheus Park.

Both teams came out strong, but it was the visitors who scored first, with Serbian striker Milan Makari scoring after only 17 minutes.

Before Tosin Kehinde, a 23-year-old Nigerian, answered just three minutes into the second half to get his team back into contention with a simple tap-in after the ball deflected off the goalkeeper.

The forward almost extended his tally of the game, but the AaB goalie easily stopped him, parrying the ball to corner kick.

Randers then took the lead after 58 minutes when Lasse Berg Johnsen converted from the penalty spot to make the score 2-1.

As the Thomas Thomasberg team tried to gain momentum to double their lead, Graves Jensen got booked and sent off, reducing them to ten men.

Following the red card, the visitors mounted tension and launched a huge onslaught that paid off in the 70th minute when Iver Fossum brought them back into the game.

The red card for Randers allowed AaB to re-enter the game, as they had been dominating since falling behind.

But Tosin Kehinde and his team hung on for a 2-2 draw at the end, and he was later named man-of-the-match for his outstanding performance.

Randers are presently two points behind their visitors, who are in fourth place after 30 games with 45 points.

Randers will face League leaders Copenhagen in a Danish Superliga playoff next Sunday.
