BRENDAN WIMBERLY - Friday, May 18, 2012
With a flurry of midweek action it's a quiet weekend in Sweden, with just Ryan Millers Halmstad and Patrick Hopkins and Steffen Vrooms Ljungskile playing on Saturday and Sunday.

IFK Varnamo - Ljungskile SK

Patrick Hopkins, Steffen Vroom and their Ljungskile teammates travel to take on IFK Varnamo this weekend.

Ljungskile haven't lost in their past five matches but they have only managed to win two of those games, so they will be hoping to gather all three points against Varnamo who sit at the bottom of the Superettan standing with just 1 point.

To make matters worse for Varnamo, they will be without captain Martin Claesson, who was red carded in their big loss to Degerfors during the week. Ljungskile may be without the services of Bruno Santos and Kenny Pavey who both picked up knocks in their midweek tilt against Varnamo.

Umea FC - Halmstad BK

Ryan Miller figures to start at Right Back when he and Halmstad travel to Umea.

Umea are currently struggling, sitting in 15th place in the Superettan table, just one spot above last place Varnamo.

Halmstad started the season well, but have been plagued by inconsistency recently, with just two wins to show in their last five games.

Umea captain Erik Lundstrom came off injured last week in their draw with Jonkopings Sodra and is a game-time decision for the match.

Halmstad don't have any major injury concerns and neither team have any players facing suspensions.
