American Exports: Josh Gatt, Molde off to frustrating start in Norwegian season

AMSTERDAM – Josh Gatt and two-time defending champs Molde FK continued their early season struggle with a galling 2-1 home defeat to Lillestrøm on Tuesday.

The US international worked a solid 86-minute shift, but the holders failed to create many dangerous scoring chances despite dominating possession. Molde surrendered the winner shortly after equalizing in the 71st minute to make it two losses in two games on the Tippeligaen campaign.


Over in England's Championship, Tim Ream went unused as Bolton edged visiting Huddersfield Town 1-0. Wanderers extended their home win streak to six and a Reebok shutout run to 382 minutes, drawing to within four points of the promotion playoff zone in the process.
