Home   /   Lewes FC 1 v 0 FC Oslo – Lewes hold on for a first European win

Kalvin Lumbombo-Kalala’s first half strike was the difference as Lewes FC held on to seal their first win in the Fenix Trophy.

The goal came in the 16th minute when Deon Moore played a cross into the Oslo box and Lumbombo-Kalala headed the ball home.

Moore continued to impress throughout the match, making quality runs in behind the defence and creating chances for his team, ending with one assist.

Unfortunately a cause for concern came in the 70th minute for Lewes when half-time substitute Archie Tamplin went down injured, forced into being replaced by Archie Panyi.

Lewes dominated the early stages of the match, with two free-kicks coming in quick succession.

Moments later Lewes came close again when a shot by Lumbombo-Kalala shook the crossbar.

Lewes went on to enjoy the larger share of possession entering half-time and creating some promising chances though they were unable to add onto their lead before the break.

Oslo struggled to get going throughout the first half with their best chance coming from a corner late on however they were unable to find an equaliser.

The visitors began the second half brighter applying pressure to Lewes with much time spent in Lewes’ final third, though they struggled to challenge Nathan Harvey in goal.

Lewes were able to calm the storm and saw the match out to a comfortable win in the end.

After their first European victory, the home side have now equalled KSK Beveren’s three points in Group D.

Oslo now remain bottom of the group following their second consecutive 1-0 defeat, the major cause for concern being the lack of goals that has troubled them throughout their opening two matches.
