Jerome Akor (middle) with Akeem Latifu celebrate a goal for Sogndal

Akeem Latifu and Jerome Akor will begin their quest to return Sogndal to the Norwegian top flight when they welcome Ullensaker/Kisa Sunday in a knockout round of the promotion playoffs.

Latifu has shaken off an injury mid-season to bring his experience to bear in the Sogndal defence, while Akor, 18, has been a revelation for both the main squad and the youth team.

The Flying Eagles striker has scored once in 10 appearances for the Sogndal first team.

Sogndal, who finished fourth in the regular season, were relegated to the lower league last campaign.

The other promotion playoff will see Aalesund take on Nest-Sotra.

The winners of these playoffs will then come face to face on Wednesday, November 25, with the winners advancing to another playoff with the team who finish in the relegation playoff bracket in the top league.

That game will be played on a home and away basis early next month with the overall winners gaining a spot in the Norwegian top league.
