Gambian trio Aziz Corr Nyang, Saihou and Alieu Jagne title hunt with Swedish Superettan side GIF Sundsvall has continued to gain more weight following their weekend 2-2 draw against Jönköping.

Currently second with 34 points in 19 fixtures, GIF is set on improving on last year's performance after settling for 5th and 47 points.

Ahead of Saturday's home encounter against Vasby United, team coach Soren Åkeby is content of taking home a point from Jönköping on Sunday, linking it to the club's strength with the signing of new players, he told club's web-site.

GIF, who are faced with the task of closing on leaders, is currently three points behind Norrköping in Sweden's second highest league.
