This is probably the last chance for PS Kemi to save their season. They have lost their last three games and are already 7 points behind TPS who hold the relegation playout spot. They have an easier end of season as they will only face one top team in their last five rounds (Ilves) and the remaining four games are against poor form teams (VPS, IFK Mariehamn, FC Inter and FC Lahti). VPS is one of the poor form teams as they have now played 8 matches without a win but only three of those have been losses. A Euro Cup spot is already 9 points away so they can start focusing on finishing in the Top-6 and prepare for next season.

PS Kemi lost to FC Honka 2-1 in their last match and especially their head coach David Hannah´s behaviour raised a few eyebrows. He was constantly shouting to his players and eventually did all his three substitutions at half time. He then shouted at his defender Sevchenko who then shouted back and during this time Honka scored their opening goal. At home Kemi has been slightly better with a 2-4-7 record but with Hannah shouting at his players so much, the team spirit cannot be high.

VPS lost their last game to Ilves 1-2. They improved on the second half but were totally against it in the first half. For some reason VPS is not playing that well at home this season. They are a much better away team with a 5-6-3 record. The teams have met twice this season with VPS winning both of them, will they win again?
