TAHARKA TAYLOR - Friday, May 27, 2011
Three Americans take part in the fourth round of the Swedish Cup while Brian Edwards and Matt Pyzdrowski compete in Superettan action.
Örebro - GAIS
Alejandro Bedoya and Örebro host GAIS in a fourth round Swedish Cup match up on Sunday as both clubs look to advance to the final stages of the competition.
Bedoya, who will start in central midfield for Örebro, will aim to continue his current individual hot streak having scored and provided an assist in his last appearance for the club despite missing Örebro's 2-0 win over Norrköping on Wednesday due to suspension.
Örebro come into the match riding a two match win streak rising to fifth place in the Allsvenskan standings, GAIS are currently tied on points with Örebro but sit one place behind in sixth place based on goal differential.
Neither club are reporting injuries at this time.
IFK Göteborg - Djurgården
Gale Agbossoumonde and Djurgården travel to Gothenburg this weekend as they take on IFK Göteborg in the fourth round of the Swedish Cup.
Agbossoumonde will start in central defense for Djurgården as he looks to continue his rapid development.
Djurgården currently sit in the Allsvenskan relegation zone so a Cup victory on Sunday could prove vital to the club's season.
The status of Djurgården starting midfielder Philip Hellquist will likely be a game day decision as Hellquist was plagued by a nagging calf injury through out this week's training.
IFK Göteborg have not reported any injuries at this time.
Hammarby - Degerfors
Brian Edwards will start in goal for Degerfors on Friday when the club takes on Hammarby.
Degerfors are currently in seventh place in the Superettan standings and are still in the mix for a promotion spot as they sit just three points behind league leaders Åtvidaberg.
Hammarby are expected to be without veteran midfielder Petter Furuseth as well as forward Björn Runström, both players have been listed with undisclosed injuries.
Matt Pyzdrowski will be the starting goal keeper for Ängelholm when they host second place Assyriska on Sunday.
Ängelholm have hit a rough patch lately having won just one match in their last five.
Similarly Assyriska have lost two straight, however they have been able to remain near the top of the table due to an impressive start to the season.
Assyriska will be without starting defender Mikael Thorstensson due to suspension.
Neither club are reporting any injuries.
Ryan Miller and Halmstads BK also feature in a fourth round Sweden Cup match up versus Malmö FF. Miller will likely start on the bench but could see action as a second half substitute.
