Socceroos forward Awer Mabil netted his sixth goal of the Danish SuperLiga season as FC Midtjylland raced to victory against Lyngby.
The competition leaders opened up a seven-point lead at the top of ladder with the 2-0 win, after defending champions FC Copenhagen lost 1-0 at Esbjerg fB on Saturday.
Anders Dreyer opened the scoring for the Wolves on the half hour mark at MCH Arena and Mabil put the seal on the three-point gain when the 24-year-old struck in the 72nd minute.

FC Copenhagen pipped Mabil’s FC Midtjylland to lift the trophy by a single point in 2018/19, denying the Socceroos attacker a first league winner’s medal.
Mabil’s sixth goal of the campaign ties his best ever goal return for a league season after only 19 matches for the two-time Danish champions in 2019/20.
He netted six in 30 matches in 2018/19 and also scored six goals in 21 matches for Adelaide United in the 2014/15 Hyundai A-League season before sealing a move to Denmark in July 2015.
