The surprise team EIF is still fighting for promotion. They are tied at the top with HIFK. FC Haka is also in the promotion fight just 7 points behind on 4th place.

EIF has lost only 1 game all season. Their defense is excellent as they have conceded only 14 goals. Sometimes though their offense is not scoring and thus 9/19 games have ended in a draw. Most of those draws come away from home. They are 6-2-1 at home this season.

FC Haka lost to HIFK 2-0 in the last round. If they would have won that game, they would have been right in the mix for promotion. Now they need to win this match as they cannot afford the difference to get any bigger. It will be tough though as Haka is not that good of an away team. They are 2-4-4 on the road this season.
