JOHN KRETLOW - Friday, September 16, 2011
Brian Edwards and Degerfros IF look to inch closer to a playoff spot while Ryan Miller hopes for playing time with Halmstad BK.
Degerfors IF - Jönköping Södra IF
Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF look to creep closer to a playoff spot as they take on Jönköping Södra IF on Saturday.
Edwards started and went the distance for Degerfors last week and should again feature this weekend.
Degerfors is coming off a thrilling 5-3 victory over Vasteras SK FK, and the team will be looking to duplicate that performance this weekend. They are currently just four points from a promotion playoff spot.
Jönköping is only three points from the relegation zone. They beat Ljungskile last week and they will hope to mirror that performance on Saturday.
Fredric Fendrich will be the only omission for Degerfors, as he will be suspended due to yellow card accumulation.
Ängelholms - Atvidabergs
Matt Pyzdrowski and Lester Dewee look to help Ängelholms top Atvidabergs in a clash between the two best teams in the Superettan.
Pyzdrowski and Dewee featured in last week's Ängelholms loss. Both should again see the field against Atvidabergs.
Ängelholms goes into the game having lost last week against Landskrona Bois. Prior to that loss, they were unbeaten in 16 games.
Atvidabergs beat IK Brage last week and took over first place in the Superettan, just ahead of Ängelholms by two points in the standings.
Due to suspension, Bruno Manoel Marinho looks to be the only player missing for Atvidabergs.
Östers IF - Ljungskile SK
Nick Noble and Michael Thomas hope to help Ljungskile SK get back to winning ways against Östers IF in Monday Superettan action.
Noble and Thomas both featured in last week's loss to Jönköping Södra IF. The American duo is likely to start once again.
Ljungskile are currently just three points from the relegation zone, so getting the three points will be vital. Östers is six points from the last playoff spot, making for a crucial Superettan matchup.
Joakim Runnemo will miss for Ljungskile, while Östers will not have the services of Manz Karlsson.
Ryan Miller and Halmstad BK take on Kalmar FF.
Sam Petrone and Mjälby take on league leaders Helsingborgs IF.
