JOHN KRETLOW - Friday, October 14, 2011
Jeremy Vuolo and AC Oulu look to finish their season strong as they take on promotion hopefuls PK-35 while Daniel Stevens and Kyle Luetkehans hope to put PS Kemi Kings over the top against KooTeePee.
IFK Mariehamn - Jaro
Mason Trafford and IFK Mariehamn take on Jaro in Monday Veikkausliiga action.
Trafford started and went the distance in Mariehamn's midweek tie against VPS. It is likely that the American will feature once again against Jaro.
Mariehamn are currently in 9th place with four games left in the season. A win on Monday could mathematically put Mariehamn in safety for the season.
Jaro are seven points from the relegation zone, and thus will need a win in order to keep their distance.
Aleksei Kangaskolkka, Ekhiabhi Okodugha, Mikko Paatelainen, Markus Paatelainen, and Fernando de Abreu are all questionable due to injury for Mariehamn.
PK-35 - AC Oulu
Jeremy Vuolo and AC Oulu take on PK-35 in a critical Ykkönen matchup.
Vuolo started and went the distance in Oulu's last game and is likely to feature once again this weekend.
The game is a must win for PK-35 if they have any hope of winning the league and promotion. With two games left, PF-35 are five points from first place FC Lahti.
Oulu were in the race for promotion throughout the season but are now mathematically unable to reach Lahti. They will though be gunning for a win and hope to ruin PF-35's dreams of promotion.
PS Kemi Kings - KooTeePee
Daniel Stevens and Kyle Luetkehans look to help PS Kemi Kings as they take on KooTeePee in the Ykkönen.
Stevens started and went the distance in Kemi's last game while Luetkehans made a cameo appearance. Both are expected to feature this weekend.
Kemi are relegated with two games left in the season, but they will look to finish the season on a high note.
KooTeePee are currently in the middle of the standings, with no danger of the relegation zone. Although they do not have a shot at promotion, they too will want to finish the season strong.
Kellan Wilson will likely be on the bench as HIFK takes on OPS.
