Ryan Miller and Halmstads BK look to finish their season on a high note despite relegation while Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF look to inch their way towards promotion.
Örebro - Halmstads BK
Ryan Miller and relegated Halmstads BK take on Örebro in Sunday Allsvenskan action.
Miller started and went the distance last week in Halmstads' loss to Syrianska FC. The American is likely to start once again.
Halmstads were officially relegated last week and are looking now to just finish the season with some momentum.
Örebro currently have 33 points and are six points from the relegation zone. A win will solidify their spot in the Allsvenskan.
Degerfors IF - IFK Värnamo
Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF need three points as they take on IFK Värnamo in the Superettan.
Edwards started and went the distance in Degerfors tie against Landskrona Bois last week. The American goalie should get the start once again this Saturday.
Degerfors are currently in fourth place and trail Ängelholms FF by six points for the qualification promotion spot. They will need a win this weekend for any chance at promotion as games dwindle down in the Superettan this season.
Värnamo are two points from the relegation zone and thus they are also in deep need of points.
Both teams are injury and suspension free.
Ljungskile SK - Vasteras SK FK
Nick Noble and Michael Thomas look to help Ljungskile SK grab a win against Vasteras SK FK.
The American duo started and went the distance in last week's win over Assyriska. Both should get the start this weekend.
Ljungskile currently have 36 points and are three points from the relegation zone. A win this weekend is a must if they want to avoid late season drama.
Vasteras are on 21 points and are in the automatic relegation zone. They trail IK Brage by six points for a spot in qualification relegation zone, where Vasteras would have an opportunity to save their season and play in the Superettan next year.
Sam Petrone and Mjälby take on IFK Göteborg on Saturday.
