Stabaek made it three wins on the bounce in the Eliteserien by defeating Mjondalen 4-2, with Junker emerging as the match winner with a 20-minute second-half hat-trick to earn the three points.

It was a predatory hat-trick for the 25-year-old, who scored with three opportunistic finishes from inside the area. One lovely finish at the front post and another to take advantage of a spill from the goalkeeper sum up the threat he posed for the visitors, smelling out chances while the defenders stood stationary.

Although his contribution to the rest of the play wasn't massive, he still won the majority of his duels and 100% of his tackles, so wasn't completely there just as the fiinisher, even if he did that job magnificently.
