Didrik Fredriksen has signed a new contract with Åsane Football. The midfielder has extended by two years. Now he and his teammates are getting ready for new points. – I have faith that the autumn will be good, says Didrik Fredriksen.
In order to move up the table, the orange must score points, preferably a win, away to Sandnes Ulf on Saturday. Åsane have taken four out of six points in the last two league games.
Lysluggen is hungry for more.
– It will probably be an even and tough match, but we are on an upward curve now. There is no reason why it should not continue, says Didrik Fredriksen.
The previous away game ended with a win against Bryne. Now the team will return to Rogaland. There we meet Sandnes Ulf – a team that stands without points in June. The light blues also went out of the cup against Sotra, but this will not be an easy task for the oranges. Both teams need the points.
– For my part, it doesn’t feel much more than a normal match, but you look at the table and see that the match is important. I think that nerves should be kept in check, no matter what.
Lysluggen came to Åsane in 2019 from Bærum – and in June he extended his contract by two years.
How was it to get this in place?
– It was good and reassuring to get things in place now. Nobody likes uncertainty. It also feels right – and I have faith that the autumn will be good.
You came to Åsane in 2019 – how would you sum up your time at the club?
– There have been different years. Everything from promotion, qualification and tougher seasons in recent seasons, but I feel very comfortable in Åsane. I really hope we get a period now that is close to the best years.
You have played good football, but the margins have not been on your side?
– Yes, without a doubt. We are not better than what the table shows, but I have played senior football for many years now – and I have never experienced a period with such a large discrepancy between what you feel you have deserved – and what you have been paid. We have seen over several matches that we play consistently and at times better than our opponents – and that gives us confidence even though we haven’t scored many points.
What do you think about the next two games, away against Sandnes Ulf – and at home against Skeid on 9 July?
– We are betting that we will take six out of six points, smiles the midfielder.
