Player to watch – Jack Cooper-Love

Jack Cooper-Love has featured mostly from the bench this season for GAIS but the 22-year-old has made a big impact in his debut campaign with the club.

The former Elfsborg attacker has scored four goals in three starts and five substitute appearances in the Allsvenskan this season, netting twice in the 3-0 win against Hacken last time out.

Cooper-Love is enjoying his first season with GAIS

We have picked Cooper-Love as our player to watch this weekend as we can see the youngster adding to his goals tally for the season against a Halmstad side that have conceded 13 goals in their last six outings.
