After kicking off the week with a winner in Sweden, Kev's hoping for a case of deja vu tonight.
"Falkenbergs have won six of their last eight games, while Orgryte have seen their form collapse in recent weeks."
Falkenbergs v Orgryte

Promotion chasers to pick up another win
Success in Sweden for us last night, as Ostersunds continued their excellent recent form with a 2-0 victory at Elfsborg. We'll give ourselves time to celebrate, and do an overnight in Scandinavia, which would probably make a good album title.
Tonight we'll catch a game from the second tier, because in-form Falkenbergs are up against Orgryte, and I fancy the hosts to pick up another victory in their quest for promotion.
Falkenbergs are just a point behind the leaders Helsinborgs, and are flying high. They have put together an impressive run of six wins from their last eight games, and their only defeat in that sequence was against the current league leaders. At the Falcon Alkoholfri Arena, they have won two of their last three matches.
Orgryte looked set to be part of the promotion shake-up, but their form has collapsed in recent weeks. They haven't won a league game since May, a run of seven outings without picking up maximum points. On the road, they have collected just two points from their last four games.
It feels like Falkenbergs should be shorter than evens to win this, but they are trading at an attractive [2.2]. I'm happy to back them at that price.
Points Staked: 114
Points Returned: 120.02
