STARS ABROAD Bitter taste for Daniel Anyembe as Viborg fail to triumph against Silkeborg

The 24-year-old Harambee Stars right back had an impressive individual display, but he could not help Viborg prevent a third defeat in for matches

Harambee Stars right back Daniel Anyembe featured for 90 minutes but could not help Viborg beat hosts Silkeborg in a Danish topflight match on Sunday afternoon.

Anyembe made two tackles and interceptions, won three of his five attempted ground duels, made two key passes and had a 90 percent passing accuracy.

He made three out of six successful long balls, and completed all three of his attempted crosses, underpinning the fact that he had a good individual game overall.

It didn't turn out to be the desired afternoon in Silkeborg, as the home team proved to be clearly the better side, winning 2-0 against a VFF side that found it difficult to create chances. 

In general, chances created were few and far between between both sides,  but Silkeborg was the closest and after a little more than half an hour of play, the home team took the lead.

Søren Tengstedt attempted a shot inside the box. Lucas Lund half cleared, and on the rebound, Alexander Lind netted for the seventh league match in a row.

The home team doubled the lead two minutes into the second half after a conversion, where Søren Tengstedt's finish was blocked by Oliver Bundgaard, but the ball dropped somewhat randomly at the feet of the red-hot Alexander Lind, who scored his second goal of the match.

In  the last ten minutes of the match, Viborg made some good scoring chances to equalize . They attempted five shots at goal during this period, and the biggest of them was missed by Oliver Bundgaard.

Viborg have now gone without a win in four of their last five league matches, but will have a chance to make amends in the Danish Cup when they play Esbjerg fB.
