Alexander Jakobsen was substituted just before the hour mark, as his side fell to a 1-0 loss to Aelsund in the Norway Tippeligaen.

Bodø/Glimt went into the international break on the back of a convincing 4-2 win that had given them a three-point cushion over their relegation rivals, and were looking to build on that momentum as the season draws to a close.

The first half was a drab affair that saw both sides fail to break the deadlock.

Manager Aasmund Bjørkan made the visitors’ first change in the 58th minute, introducing Morten Konradsen in the place of -eligible Alexander Jakobsen.

The switch failed to bring about an immediate positive change, and to make matters worse, Ulrik Saltnes scored an own goal just five minutes later to put the hosts in the lead.

The own goal would eventually decide the match in favor of Aelsund, while Bodø/Glimt remain on 30 points, just three ahead of 14th-placed Stabæk, although the latter side will not be able to overtake their rivals this week, due to the head-to-head results this season.
