Allsvenskan 2013: Mjällby AIF

With play in Sweden's top football league set to kick off at the weekend, contributor Nic Townsend offers the lowdown on each team and their chances of taking home the 2013 Allsvenskan title.

In brief: Mjällby are a small club from a small fishing village in Blekinge, who have spent the vast majority of their existence in much lower divisions. They surprised many when they won promotion to the Allsvenskan in 2009, but they’ve surprised many more by staying.

Expectations in 2013: Survival will be their priority, and there is every chance they’ll achieve it, however appointing a new inexperienced manager could be disruptive.

Players to watch: Pär Eriksson, a loanee from IFK Göteborg, was one of the competition’s leading goal scorers last season.
