JON VAN WAGENEN - Sunday, August 15, 2010
It's an important Monday for the Americans in the Allsvenskan, Alejandro Bedoya's Örebro will try to stay in the top three, while Ryan Miller's Halmstad attempt to avoid the bottom three.

Mjällby – Örebro

Örebro needs a win over the league's fifth place team to hold onto sole possession of the third place they've held for the last 10 weeks.

Bedoya is returning to Sweden after playing 67 minutes against Brazil in New York on Tuesday and reporting the same heel pain that caused him to limp when he exited the previous loss to Malmö.

Nordin Gerzic is suspended for being red-carded while Fredrik Nordback joins Tommy Wirtanen, Oskar Johansson and Peter Westman on Örebro's injury list.

Craig Henderson and Daniel Ivanovski remain injured while midfield creator Tobias Grahn is suspended for the hosts.

Åtvidabergs-- Halmstad

Halmstad needs a win over the League's bottom club to ensure that they don't end the 19th round in relegation territory.

After two straight losses, the pressure is starting to mount in Halland. Meanwhile, Ätvidaberg has one draw and six losses in their last seven matches.

Miller regained a starting position last match, a loss against Elfsborg.

Alberis da Silva returns for the minnows after an injury problem. Guri Baqaj joins Halmstad's injury-free squad after finalizing his contract.

The two teams last met at Kopparvallen in 1982.
