Former head coach of Kaizer Chiefs, Stuart Baxter, is currently facing a tough relegation battle in Sweden with his second-tier team, Helsingborg IF.
After 20 league matches played in the Superatten, Helsingborg finds themselves in a challenging position with fewer points on the table than the number of matches played. With only 18 points earned so far this season, they have lost 10 matches, won four, and drawn six.
A recent 2-1 defeat to Landskrona in the Superatten pushed Helsingborg down into the relegation zone. They now occupy the 15th spot on the table, just above Skövde, with 16 points from 20 matches.
With only 10 league matches remaining in the season, Stuart Baxter faces the task of guiding his team out of the relegation zone. Helsingborg and Skövde are currently in the automatic relegation positions, while Örebro and Örgryte occupy the relegation playoffs spots in 13th and 14th places, respectively, with 22 and 19 points.
In their most recent defeat, former Kaizer Chiefs player Cole Alexander played for 66 minutes for Helsingborg. Stuart Baxter will need to put in extra effort in the final 10 matches to help his team avoid relegation to the third tier of Swedish football.
Helsingborg’s remaining 10 league matches will be against Sundsvall, GAIS, Eskilstuna, Öster, Örebro, Östersund, Gefle, Trelleborg, Brage, and Skövde. These matches offer a potential opportunity to gather 30 points and potentially avoid relegation.
