AIK still drawing blanks in the Stockholm derby

24 Sep

Andy Hudson brings us the tale of woe from another Stockholm derby:-

AIK’s winless run in the Tvillingderbyt stretched to four games as Stockholm rivals Djurgården recorded a 1-0 victory in which the real winners were Helsingborg who now find themselves eight points clear of AIK at the top of the Allsvenskan and with a game in hand. The win for Djurgården came despite their boss, Magnus Pehrsson, picking faults with what he perceived to be the rough nature of some of the home side’s tackling.

The last time AIK won this game was during their 2009 Gold season, almost two years to the day when a Flavio double secured the three points. The Gnaget fans amongst the attendance of 24,639, a crowd beaten only by the first derby back in the opening round of games of this Allsvenskan year, were buoyed by going into this game on the back of five straight victories – a remarkable run considering the sale of their potent strike force of Mohammed and Tetteh Bangura – and harbouring hopes of overhauling Helsingborg. By the end of the match the Allsvenskan became a one horse race.
