Brent McGrath bid farewell to Fredericia's home ground with a stoppage-time equaliser on Sunday, while Hong Kong-based midfielder Jared Lum was also on the scoresheet.

In a topsy-turvy match in Denmark's second tier, Fredericia gave up a 1-0 lead to come from behind twice and draw 3-3 with Roskilde after McGrath converted a penalty in the 93rd minute.
The 24-year-old striker celebrated by embracing Fredericia's fans behind the goal and paid tribute to the club for helping him revitalise his career.
"It has been fantastic for me ever since the beginning with [former coach] Ove [Pedersen] and then now with Jesper [Sorensen]," McGrath told Fredericia's YouTube channel.
"Then, of course, to score in my last game at Monjasa Park in front of our fans - that's fantastic."
