Stankov's header that led to a goal; photo: onside.dkAleksandar Stankov continued his good form in the early parts of the Danish season by picking up a goal and an assist in today’s 2:2 draw between Viborg and Brøndby.

The 22-year-old Aleksandar Stankov started in attack for Viborg where he was partnered by Thomas Dalgaard.  Several minutes before halftime, with the score still goalless, Stankov reacted the quickest following a free kick and sent a header to the back of the net.  It was Aleksandar’s second goal in the opening four rounds of the 2013-14 season.

In the 2nd half, with the game now tied at 1:1 in the 79th minute, Stankov’s pass on the counter attack reached his strike partner Dalgaard who took several dribbles before slotting a shot past the visiting keeper.  Moments after Viborg’s second goal, Stankov was substituted by Markus Gustafsson.
