Sandefjord preview: Hoping to move up from the last place

With nine points from 11 matches in the league so far, Sandefjord are currently at the very bottom of the Eliteserien table. On top of that, Sandefjord are in poor form at the moment with five games without a win, but on the bright side, we are still in the first half of the season and many of the teams are only a few points ahead of them.

When it comes to team news, Stian Kristiansen is suspended for this game, while Aleksander Nilsson and Darrell Tibell are injured.

Player to watch: Gard Simenstad

With three goals in the Eliteserien this season, Simenstad is HamKam's top scorer in the league. The 25-year-old midfielder also only had six starts so far, so he's often used as a super-sub.

Can Simenstad score from a free-kick again?

Two of the three goals that Simenstad has scored in the league this season came after direct free-kicks. Will we see more of his magic against Sandefjord?
