Two quickfire goals from Jiloan Hamad and Agon Mehmeti saw Malmo to a 3-0 win over Orebro, allowing them to close the gap on Allsvenskan leaders Helsingborg to three points.

Hamad found the back of the net on 14 minutes before Mehmeti doubled the advantage two minutes later to put the visitors in command.

Daniel Larsson added a third from the penalty spot after Orebro had Nordin Gerzic sent off in the 71st minute. The defeat left the home side seven points adrift of their opponents.

Elsewhere, Mervan Celik scored twice as GAIS beat Mjallby 3-2. Celik netted in the 38th and 40th minutes to put the hosts in the driving seat but Marcus Ekenberg pulled one back four minutes after the break.

Bjorn Andersson restored GAIS' two-goal cushion in the 86th minute and his goal proved key as Juan Robledo scored a second for Mjallby in stoppage time.
