JON VAN WAGENEN - Friday, April 23, 2010
The majority of the Americans in the Allsvenskan will be in Berhn Arena as Örebro host Halmstad while Nick Noble will continue to ply his trade for Ljungskile.

Örebro – Halmstad

Both Örebro and Halmstad are in the midst of up and down seasons and in the very tight Allsvenskan standings, they sit in fourth and fifth place respectively heading into Sunday's match.

Alejandro Bedoya for Örebro and Ryan Miller for Halmstad are locks to start, while Michael Thomas has been riding the Halmstad bench of late.

Miller, a right back, will have to defend Bedoya at times as the attacking right midfielder is prone to roam all over the field.

Örebro has disappointed with home losses to Mjällby and GAIS while managing to win tough away matches at AIK, Brommapojkarna and Gefle.

Halmstad were Humiliated 6-0 at Elfsborg, but rebounded at home with a 4-0 win over Åtvidabergs. They followed a loss to Mjällby with wins over AIK and GAIS.

No new injuries have cropped up for either team.

Örgryte -- Ljungskile

Goalkeeper Nick Noble and Ljungskile head to Gamla Ullevi to take on local rivals Örgryte.

Örgryte are fresh off a demotion from Sweden's top league and have a few Allsvenskan veterans mixed in with an exciting bunch of youngsters.

Ljungskile will look to dig themselves out of the bottom of the league and build on a win in the Svenska Cupen.
