In the 75th minute, Josefin Johansson levelled matters for fellow country-woman Faith Ikidi's side before Madelen Janogy pulled through seven minutes later to net the winner.

Chikwelu has now scored two goals in 14 games since joining Elisabet Gunnardottir's ladies from rivals Umea this season.

The defeat, which is the third in a row leaves Kristianstad in eighth position on the log with 15 points, and they will host Orebro in their next league encounter on Saturday.
