Duo feature for Throttur

29 June 2016

Callum Brittain and Kabongo Tshimanga both featured for Throttur Reykjavik on Tuesday night, in their Pepsi League clash with Vikingur Olafsvik.

Right-back Brittain made his sixth straight start for Throttur, who ran-out to a two-goal lead inside three minutes.

Brynjar Jonasson opened the scoring after latching onto Thiago Pinto Borges’ through-ball before turning provider for Vihjalmur Palmason to double the advantage with a neat finish.

Vikingur then pulled one back just prior to half-time when Hrvoje Tokic headed in from a corner.

Throttur, who introduced Dons striker Tshimanga off the bench in the second period, had chances to extend their lead but with six minutes remaining conceded a scrappy equaliser after failing to deal with a ball in from the left.

They were made to pay for their missed chances in stoppage time when the hosts completed a dramatic turnaround – Aleix Egea Acame finding the net with a header from a corner.

Tuesday’s defeat leaves Throttur in 11th place in the Pepsi League table, although they are level on points with the side above them, IA.

Next up is their Icelandic Cup quarter-final against division-rivals and league leaders FH.
