The penultimate round of Sweden’s topmost football championship saw only two but important African goals over the weekend.

Sierra Leonean forward Mohammed Buya Turay scored in the second half as Djurgarden cemented its position at the top with a 3-0 trashing of Orebro.
 
The 63rd minute strike was Turay’s 14th this season and made him joint top scorer in the Allsvenskan.
 
Djurgarden needs just a point in the last match this Saturday to claim the title.
 
At the other end of table, Nigerian Nsima Peter scored in the 75th minute as relegation-threatened Falkenberg beat fellow strugglers Kalmar 3-2 to keep alive its hopes of staying in the top flight. 
 
In the lower tier, the Superettan, Nigerian forward Michael Omoh scored as Mjallby flogged Syrianska 2-0. The win guaranteed a promotion to the Allsvenskan for Mjallby with one match remaining.
 
Other Africans who made Mjallby’s success possible include Gambian Bubacarr Jobe, who has scored 12 goals so far, and his compatriot, defender Mohammed Mbye.
 
Gambian Alexander Jallow scored the winner from the spot in the 73rd minute as Jonkoping Sodra beat Trelleborg 3-2 with Ghana’s Saifu Fatawu scoring Trelleborg’s first goal. 
 
Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Boakye was on target for Halmstad as they overcame a two-goal deficit to overwhelm Brage 3-2.
 
In the Danish Superliga, Marvin Egho of Nigerian extraction was on the losing side, scoring one in his side, Randers’ 5-2 defeat to Brondby while Senegalese attacker Dame N’Doye hit both goals as FK Copehagen beat AGF 2-1.
 
The two African goals in the Norwegian Eliteserien came in Rosenborg’s 3-1 victory over league leaders Molde.
 
Nigerian Babajide Akintola scored in the 35th minute for Rosenborg while Ohi Omoijuanfo grabbed the lone goal for Molde, his 14th for the campaign.
