PREVIEW: JELGAVA - RFS/OLIMPIS
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
Friday, April 30, 2010
Nate Weiss and Jelgava return home on the hunt for their first win of the Latvian Virsliga campaign when they host RFS/Olimpis on Sunday at Ozolnieku Stadions in Jelgava.

Weiss was the lone bright spot in Jelgava's 1-2 loss to Jumala last week when he scored the lone goal off a header.

The American will likely get the starting nod from head coach Dainis Kazakevičs and line up at left back.

Jelgava are struggling in Virsliga play starting off the season with three straight losses, however their Latvian Cup play has defied all odds.

Weiss and company pulled off another stunning Cup victory on Wednesday when they defeated giant Skonto in penalty kicks.

It now puts Jelgava in a final next month versus Jūrmala in a match that will see the winner automatically claim a Europa League berth.

As for Sunday's league encounter, the visitors from Riga sit in eighth place and are winless as well on the young season earning just a single point in three encounters.

No major injuries have been reported by either club so both coaches will have full squads available.
