DAVID SMITH - Thursday, June 17, 2010
Jamil Fearrington and Roskilde will take on Skive with their survival in the bag while Babajide and Viborg will look to finish their season on a high note on their trip to Fyn.

FC Fyn - Viborg FF

After Wednesday's disappointing draw against last-place Brabrand, Babajide Ogunbiyi and a stifling Viborg defense will hope for one last virtuoso performance against Fyn as they head into the off-season.

The dominant performance of the Greens' back line has been only half of the story of their spring campaign, with the inability of their attack to put the ball into the net leaving them to settle with a finish well off of their earlier hopes of promotion.

Their 25 goals conceded over 29 games - including only one allowed over their last four contests - is good enough for second in the league, however the division's second-worst scoring record has highlighted their continued struggles in front of goal.

A recent run of two wins and two draws has brought the team back up into seventh place, and a win over Fyn on Sunday could see them jump into sixth should Naestved slip up against Kolding.

Viborg will likely be without the injured Marc dal Hende, while Fyn could be missing Claus Pedersen and Frank Andreasen due to injuries, and Mads Overgaard for personal reasons.

FC Roskilde - Skive IK

Last weekend's road win over Hvidovre wrapped up Roskilde's First Division status for next season, and now Jamil Fearrington and his teammates return home to celebrate their season finale on Sunday against Hvidovre.

The team looked to be headed for the lower reaches of the Danish league system at the midseason break, however a much-improved overall team play highlighted by the goalscoring feats of Jeppe Kjr saw them come ahead in the highly competitive race to beat the final relegation spot.

Should they come out ahead against Skive on Sunday, they have a strong chance to pass Vejle for tenth place in the standings, who will be locked in a fierce battle against promotion-hunting Lyngby, who need a win to assure their own advancement to the Superligaen.

Roskilde continue to be without long-term absences Morten Avnskjold, who has missed the whole season with a leg injury and forward Tobias Perch-Nielsen, who underwent surgery on his meniscus earlier in the spring.

Skive are reporting no injuries or suspensions.

Notes

Euan Holden is still recovering from groin surgery, and will therefore miss Vejle's final game of the season, as they try to put a damper on Lyngby's shot at promotion.
