JOHN KRETLOW - Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Jeremy Vuolo and AC Oulu are in action on Wednesday against OPS while Daniel Stevens and Kyle Luetkehans will look to lead PS Kemi Kings in their game against PK-35
AC Oulu - OPS
Jeremy Vuolo and AC Oulu look to bounce back from their weekend loss and get back on track against OPS.
Vuolo started and went the distance in Oulu's loss and is likely to start once again this Wednesday.
Oulu had been streaking and were within striking distance of first place in the Ykkönen, but a tough 5-2 loss to Viikingit hurt their momentum. They look to get back to winning ways this midweek.
OPS is unbeaten in their last eleven games and looks to continue that streak on Wednesday.
The game is a local derby and has promotion implications, which makes for a tough game on both ends.
PS Kemi Kings - PK-35
Daniel Stevens and Kyle Luetkehans look to help struggling PS Kemi Kings dig out of the relegation zone, as they take on PK-35 in Ykkönen midweek action.
Stevens started and went the distance in Kemi's loss to PoPa, while Luetkehans did not leave the bench. Both could feature on Thursday.
Kemi are currently in the relegation zone and nine points from safety. They lost 4-2 to PoPa on the weekend and will need a bounce back performance if they are going to take down one of the best teams in the Ykkönen.
PK-35 are in second place and just two points from FC Lahti. They are coming off a win over Espoo and a second victory in a row could bolster PF-35 into first place.
Kemi's Jukka Yrjänheikin is questionable to play due to an injury occurred last weekend.
