Team News: Ljungskile SK
Owing to a completely injury-free group available to select from, Ljungskile SK manager Jörgen Wålemark doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever before this clash.
We envisage that GIF Sundsvall will probably see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Ljungskile SK could well find it tough getting on the scoresheet but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a controlled 3-1 win for GIF Sundsvall by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
