JOHN KRETLOW - Friday, September 9, 2011
Lester Dewee looks to mirror his goal-scoring performance for Ängelholms FF while Brian Edwards and Degerfors look to claw their way back into the promotion picture in the Superettan.
Ängelholms FF - Landskrona Bois
Matt Pyzdrowski and Lester Dewee look to keep Ängelholms FF at the top of the Superettan as they take on Landskrona Bois.
Pyzdrowski started and went the distance for Ängelholms last week while Dewee came on in the second half and scored the dramatic game-tying goal against Assyriska FF. Pyzdrowski will get the starting nod in goal, however Dewee is expected to miss the game with a hamstring problem.
Ängelholms has not lost since May but came to the brink of snapping that streak last week. They went into stoppage time losing to Assyriska but Dewee's first goal preserved Ängelholms' unbeaten streak and the lead in the Superettan.
Although Landskrona is coming off a win over Jönköping Södra IF last week, they will need to replicate that performance in order to claw their way out of the relegation zone. They are only goal differential away from safety.
The only other scratch of the game will be Marcus Lindberg, as he will miss for Ängelholms due to suspension.
Jönköping Södra IF - Ljungskile SK
Nick Noble and Michael Thomas will take on Jönköping Södra IF in Superettan play this Monday.
The American duo started and went the distance for Ljungskile last week and they are both expected to start against Jönköping.
Ljungskile is coming off a tough loss against Atvidabergs but will need to come up with three points in order to keep pace in the standings. They are currently seven points from a playoff spot.
Jönköping is only in the safety zone due to goal differential and thus will need the win to distance themselves from the relegation zone.
Ljungskile's Genalvo da Silva Oliveira will miss due to yellow car accumulation while Tommy Thelin will miss as well for Jönköping.
Vasteras SK FK - Degerfors IF
Brian Edwards looks to help Degerfors IF get closer to a playoff spot as they take on Vasteras SK FK on Sunday.
Edwards started and played ninety minutes in Degerfors big win last week over Hammarby. He looks to start once again this weekend.
Degerfors is currently alone in fourth place and trails GIF Sundsvall by four points for a playoff spot. They will need a win this week to keep pace in the Superettan.
Vasteras has had a struggling season and finds themselves deep in the relegation zone. They lost big to IF Brommapojkarna last week and will need a bounce back performance if they want to make a run save their season.
Ryan Miller and Halmstad BK travel to play Trelleborg FF on Monday.
Sam Petrone and MJälby AIF will host IFK Norrköping FK in Saturday Allsvenskan action.
