TRAFTON KENNEY - Thursday, June 3, 2010
Daniel Antunez and FC Inter look to right the ship when they travel to JJK while Greg Eckhardt and VPS welcome in pesky Haka. in Veikkausliiga action.

FC Inter - JJK

Daniel Antunez and FC Inter travel to seventh-place JJK this Friday in desperate search for a win in the Veikkausliiga.

Both teams have two days less to prepare for the match up after the initial Sunday kickoff was rescheduled to two days earlier.

Antunez started and played 57 minutes during a 2-0 loss to AC Oulu last week and will be hoping to build on some of his recent cameos in midfield.

FC Inter Coach Job Dragtsma, however, will be without the services of starting goalkeeper David Monsalve who is expected to be out for up to three weeks through injury.

FC Inter currently sit just two points off the bottom of the standings with a meager seven points from five games.

VPS - Haka

VPS hope to move into the top half of the Veikkausliiga standings when they face Haka on Monday.

Greg Eckhardt started his first game last week, playing the full 90 minutes and helping the VPS defense shut out second-placed FC Honka in a 0-0 tie.

The backline, however, will face an equally potent attack that has led Haka to fourth place in the standings.

FC Haka's Peruvian duo of Josef Chavez and Benito Yilaconza are also expected to feature in Monday's game after impressing last week in their debut against MyPa.

American goalkeeper Brian Pope is still recovering from a shoulder injury and will not be available for VPS.
