This match in one sentence
An injury-time winner took the points.
So what?
Esbjerg stay 10th, SønderjyskE climb to 7th depending on Monday's result.
The drama unfolds

The teams traded half-chances in the first twenty minutes or so.  Esbjerg's Kenneth Fabricius almost turned in a dangerous low cross from the right in the first minute.  SønderjyskE's Lasse Vibe sent a volley wide and then a cross just eluded him.  In the meantime Jacob Ankersen had also gone close for the home side.

On 16 minutes, a super SønderjyskE move released Gill Swerts down the right and he laid on another shooting chance for Vibe.  Esbjerg's goalkeeper, Lukas Hradecky, made a magnificent one-handed stop.

The scene-setter clip is from 24 minutes in.

Just after this, SønderjyskE had two chances in quick succession after Jakob Ankersen had been harshly judged to have fouled Tommy Bechmann.  It is Bechmann who makes Hradecky work again in this next clip.

As the interval approached, Martin Braithwaite might have done better with a header for the home side, and then Fabricius got hurt in the box in almost the same circumstances as the first minute.  Here's the clip, with a delicious pass by Steffen Ernemann to set up the chance, followed by another clip from stoppage time which has Sebastian Andersen hitting the bar after a good save from the visiting keeper.  0-0 at half-time

SønderjyskE took the lead very early in the second half.  Hradecky punched a cross clear but the ball fell to Vibe whose shot crept in through a crowd, maybe with a deflection.  0-1

The visitors' defence were looking right into low bright sunlight and that could have been a factor in the equaliser after 56 minutes.  Jakob Ankersen got in front of his marker to head in Peter Ankersen's cross.  1-1

The SønderjyskE keeper was perhaps a bit fortunate to save a shot from Ernemann - his block looped up and landed on the roof of the net.  The game entered a cagey phase - both sides made substitutions and the rhythm became staccato.  The next two clips are from late Esbjerg pressure as they responded to the home crowd's urging.

The sucker-punch winning goal came in stoppage time - I just caught the end of the play on film.  It will be unpleasant viewing for the Esbjerg faithful.  The scorer is Eyolfur Hedinsson.  If only it had been a header.  Final score 1-2
