Michael Laudrup's son, Andreas Laudrup scored two times to give his side a victory that helped them rise in the table. Atle Roar Haland's equaliser earned second-placed Odense a point in a 1-1 draw against third-spotted Brondby in the SAS-Liga.
Brondby's afternoon started badly when Michael Krohn-Delhi was dismissed after 27 minutes, but the 10 men nevertheless took the lead four minutes later through Mikael Nilsson.
However, Haland restored parity seven minutes before the break to keep Odense four points ahead of Brondby.
Runaway leaders FC Copenhagen yesterday continued their march towards the title with a 3-1 home win over Randers FC.
Andreas Laudrup - son of former Denmark striker Michael Laudrup - scored twice to help FC Nordsjaelland to a 2-0 triumph at Sonderjyske which moved them up a place to ninth.
Finally, bottom club AaB and mid-table AC Horsens battled out a goalless draw.
