Djurgårdens IF lead the way in defence of their Allsvenskan title after a 4-0 win at newly promoted Enköpings SK.
Enköpings, already bottom and without a win this season, found themselves a goal down in the third minute through Andreas Johansson. The same player doubled the lead on 29 minutes, and within seconds had completed a half-hour hat-trick. Kim Källström scored the fourth 28 minutes from the end.
The champions moved a point ahead of previous leaders Hammarby, who remained unbeaten but were held to a goalless draw at GIF Sundsvall. On a difficult surface, neither side could create clear-cut chances. Sundsvall are now tenth.
Pressure kept on
AIK Solna kept the pressure on the top two and moved to within a point of Hammarby as they beat Halmstads BK 4-2. Although Igor Sypniewski gave the visitors a ninth-minute lead, Krister Nordin soon equalised from a corner and the introduction of Mats Rubarth for the injured Arash Talebinejad on the half-hour proved AIK's catalyst.
Substitute works wonders
The substitute was fouled in the box two minutes before the break to allow Andreas Andersson to put AIK ahead and Rubarth scored on 54 and 87 minutes to ensure Sypniewski's second just after the hour was only a consolation.
Helsingborgs IF are fourth thanks to a 2-1 win at struggling IFK Göteborg, Jesper Jansson scoring twice, while Landskrona BoIS halted Östers IF's promising start with a 2-0 home victory. IF Elfsborgs drew 1-1 at high-flying Örebro SK, while Malmö FF and Örgryte IS, who played on Tuesday, also shared a goal each to remain in the lower reaches of the table.
