Sweden round-up: Djurgårdens open gap at top

Champions Djurgårdens IF moved three points clear at the top with a 3-0 win against second-placed Hammarby.

Champions Djurgårdens IF strengthened their position at the top of the Allsvenskan table with a convincing 3-0 win against second-placed Hammarby. The derby victory moved the leaders three points clear at the head of the table.

Derby success
Djurgården took the lead in the 27th minute through midfield player Kim Källström and two goals in quick succession either side of half-time sealed the result. Johan Elmander doubled the advantage five minutes before the interval before Källström added a third a minute into the second period.

Malmö move third
Hammarby's defeat enabled Malmö FF to move to within one point of second place with a 5-0 victory at home to Helsingborgs IF. Peter Ijeh created the opening goal for Andreas Yngvesson in the 13th minute and then gave strike partner Niklas Skoog the chance to double the lead seven minutes before the break. Skoog scored twice more after the interval to claim the match ball, and Yngvesson was also on target again.

Alvés on target
AIK Solna dropped to fourth after being held to a goalless draw at home by Örebro SK, who fell to fifth, while Halmstads BK were defeated 3-1 at Örgryte IS. Afonso Alvés (2) and Patrik Fredholm scored for the home side, with a late Sharbel Touma penalty scant consolation for Halmstad.

Late turnaround
At the bottom of the table, Landskrona BoIS seemed set to extend their sequence without a win to six matches as Samuel Holmén gave IF Elfsborg a 63rd-minute lead. However, late goals from Matthias Eklund and Magnus Torvaldsson turned the match in the home team's favour.

Strugglers draw
It finished 1-1 between struggling GIF Sundsvall and Östers IF, while a Patric Andersson strike proved enough for an injury-hit IFK Göteborg away at Enköpings SK.
