Sweden round-up: Malmö on a roll

Malmö FF are well into their stride after a fifth consecutive win, 2-1 at IF Elfsborg.
Malmö FF, the pre-season title favourites, are well into their stride after recording a fifth consecutive win, 2-1 at IF Elfsborg.

Malmö climb to third
Nigerian striker Peter Ijeh put Malmö in front after three minutes and they made sure of victory through Niklas Skoog's eleventh goal of the season 13 minutes from time. Hans Berggrens struck a late consolation for the home side who slipped to tenth, while Malmö climbed to third just one point behind leaders Djurgårdens IF.

Red cards
The match between IFK Göteborg and AIK Solna was marred by trouble between the two sets of fans prior to the game and on the pitch there was no shortage of tension - IFK's Magnus Johansson and AIK's Svante Samuelsson both received red cards as the Stockholm club won 2-0 through first-half goals from Fredrik Björck and Daniel Hoch. The result kept AIK in fourth place while IFK are ninth.

Djurgården defeat
Reigning champions Djurgården suffered another defeat at the hands of bogey team Örgryte IS, going down 3-0 at home. First-half goals from Afonso Alves and David Marek put the visitors in the driving seat and Djurgården, missing Johan Elmander's pace in attack, failed to take their chances at the other end. Paulinho Guara completed the scoring on 65 minutes to lift Örgryte to seventh in the table. Djurgården remain top.

Hammarby bounce back
Second-placed Hammarby bounced back from two straight defeats with a 2-0 win against Helsingborgs IF, stand-in striker Mikael Andersson scoring both goals, while Halmstads BK were comfortable 3-0 winners against Öster - a result that cost Öster coach Jevgenij Kouznetsov his job.

Enköping taste victory
Enköpings SK recorded their first ever home win in the Allsvenskan, 3-1 against GIF Sundsvall, Andreas Hermansson (2) and Nichlas Norell scoring the goals. It finished 0-0 between Landskrona BoIS and Örebro SK.
