Andrija Novakovich kept Serie B side Frosinone in the mix for a playoff promotion place after scoring in this weekend’s clash at Pescara.
The U.S. Men’s National Team prospect made an immediate impact on Friday, scoring four minutes after coming onto the pitch as a second-half substitute. After Pescara took the lead in first-half stoppage time, Novakovich earned his side a point after scoring his fourth league goal of the season. The 23-year-old made his 30th league appearance of the season, helping his side remain five points clear of ninth place Empoli. Frosinone has three matches remaining this season, but look likely to feature in the Serie B promotion playoffs later this summer.
Romain Gall played 39 minutes off the bench for Norwegian side Stabaek on Sunday, registering one assist in a 3-1 win. The Malmo loanee has waited for a true chance to make an impact at his new club and did so this weekend. Stabaek’s win moved them to fifth in the Eliteserien table with 15 points from nine matches. For Gall, he will hope Sunday’s performance gives him a needed boost going forward.
