A round up of the weekends action.
The second round of matches have been completed in Div 3 Östra Svealand and Botkyrka team Konyaspor seem to be taking things in their stride with another impressive victory on Friday night.
It took the home team 35 minutes to break down a resilient Stripes side at Alby IP, Cuckovic getting the first counter followed by strikes from Sacko and Smailogic, the away side battled but were outplayed by their hosts. Andrew O’Sullivan got his second goal of the campaign late on.
Spårvägens bounced back from an opening day defeat to chalk up three points against Tyresö. Robert Irestams goal and a second half penalty secured the home sides first win of the season at Skarpnäcks IP.
Nabil El Mahi scored two goals in as many minutes to grab a point for Älvsjö after Tellus had taken a quick two goal lead thanks to strikes from Ian Mack and Tommy Höglund.
An interesting fixture was the one at Södertälje where much fancied Assyriska and Vagnhärads took a share of the spoils. The away side will be kicking themselves after failing to maintain a three goal lead in front of the days biggest crowd of 300 plus. There were no fewer than 9 yellow cards and a red distributed by referee Anders Engström in this enthralling fixture.
Enhörna scored four goals without reply last week but were on the receiving end of four this week as Huddinge ran out winners. The hosts lead the match after a 34 minute strike by Anton Eriksson but a quick double by Carl Major put Huddinge ahead at the interval. Gerrbrand and Gultikin made sure Huddinge took the points from a hard fought affair.
Mälarhöjden had a slender victory against fellow relegation favourites Panellinios in a match that saw no bookings and only one goal, Imran Butt getting the crucial goal with just seven minutes of play remaining.
Looking ahead to this weeks fixtures:
Thursday night sees the first fixture of the week and it sees Vagnhärads host Långholmen. The Stripes will be eager to get some points on the board after a dismal start to 2010 and the fact that they may be understrength for this match adds more worries for the trainer duo of Max Hallberg and Stuart Lascelles. Vagnhärads are a hard team to beat on their own patch so they will be favourites to take all three points.
The top match this week is Assyriska Ungdom against IFK Tellus, second against third placed respectively, this one could be another goal feast at Södertälje Arena.
