FC Helsingør returned from the September international break to host Hvidovre IF on Sunday, splitting the points in a four-goal, back-and-forth affair at Helsingør Stadion. Starting striker Tonni Adamsen opened the scoring in the ninth minute with his fifth goal of the campaign, assisted by South African international Liam Jordan. In the second half, substitute Sebastian Czajkowski again gave Helsingør a short-lived lead with a 74th minute penalty-kick conversion. 

Both go-ahead goals were answered by the visitors, with Marcus Lindberg and Mohamad Fakhri Al-Naser equalising.

FCH (6-2-0, 20 points) remains unbeaten and atop the NordicBet Liga table through eight rounds. Helsingør will next visit Fredericia at 18.00 CET on 17 September in a top-3 clash.
