JOHN KRETLOW - Friday, October 7, 2011
Matt Pyzdrowski and Ängelholms FF look to sneak back into an automatic promotion spot while Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF hope to continue their good form and slip into a promotion spot as well.
Ängelholms FF - Östers IF
Matt Pyzdrowski and Ängelholms FF take on Östers IF in a critical match in the Allsvenskan this weekend.
Pyzdrowski started and went the distance in Ängelholms' loss last week. The American goalie should get the start once again while Lester Dewee is not likely to feature.
Ängelholms is coming off a loss to GIF Sundsvall and have only mustered one win in their last five games. They are currently in a promotion playoff spot but a good finish in the season could clinch an automatic spot to the Allsvenskan.
Östers are currently surging and are unbeaten in their last seven games. They are currently fifth in the standings with three games left and wins in their last games could sneak them into promotion.
Dewee looks to miss the rest of the season. Jonas Nilsson, Antonio Rojas and Gabriel Ucar are all injured and questionable to take part for Ängelholms as well.
Johan Persson and Mario Vasilj will miss for Östers because of suspension.
IF Brommapojkarna - Degerfors IF
Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF play IF IF Brommapojkarna in a match with promotion aspirations on the line.
Edwards started and played the full ninety minutes last week for Degerfors. The American goalie is expected to feature once again this weekend.
Degerfors beat IFK Värnamo last week and are unbeaten in their last five games. A win this weekend could possibly bolt Degerfors into a promotion playoff spot.
Brommapojkarna are currently in 6th place and coming off a 2-0 victory over Brage. They look for the win this weekend in order to keep their slim playoff chances alive.
Qviding FIF - Ljungskile SK
Nick Noble and Michael Thomas look to help Ljungskile SK in their game against Qviding in the Superettan.
The American duo started and went the whole ninety minutes in last week's win over Vasteras SK FK.
Ljungskile is coming off a two game win streak after having lost three games straight. They are currently in the middle of the standings but still could mathematically end up in a relegation playoff. A win this weekend could solidify their spot in the Superettan for another season.
Qviding are in last place and officially relegated. They have not won since June 26th.
Qviding's goalie Johan Hagman had missed a chunk of the season but came back to play last week and should get the start once again.
