Malmo closed the gap on Allsvenskan leaders Helsingborg to two points with a 2-0 win at home to Trelleborg Sunday.

Jimmy Durmaz opened the scoring after 25 minutes and Guillermo Molins made sure of the win four minutes from time. Orebro are third in the table after winning by the same score at home to BK Hacken, Magnus Kihlberg (14) and Paulinho Guara (46) scoring the goals.

Elsewhere, AIK remain off the bottom on goal difference only after losing 2-1 at home to Djurgardens.

Antonio Flavio gave AIK the perfect start with a goal after just two minutes, but the visitors hit back through Joel Perovuo (38) and Johan Oremo (72) before having Yosif Ayuba sent off two minutes from the end.

Elsewhere, Atvidaberg and Elfsborg drew 1-1. Atvidaberg took the lead through Haris Radetinac (26) but were denied all three points by Erik Moberg's own goal five minutes before half-time.

Brommapojkarna beat Halmstad 1-0 thanks to an own goal from Tomas Zvirgzdauskas, while the game between Gefle and Kalmar finished goalless despite Kalmar having Paulus Arajuuri sent off just before the interval.
