Player to watch – Morten Bjorlo

Fredrikstad midfielder Morten Bjorlo has been excellent in the early stages of the new season, helping to guide his new club into the European places.

The former HamKam and Rosenborg player moved to Fredrikstad ahead of the 2024 campaign and has taken to his new club like a duck to water.

The Fredrikstad midfielder has been in top form

The 28-year-old has scored six goals in the Eliteserien so far this season, his best-ever total. We're expecting another big performance from Fredrikstad's top goalscorer this weekend when they play host to struggling Tromso.
