Pohjanmaa Derby part 2, well actually part 3 as this is their 3rd match in the league this season, but part 2 because they just met last week in Seinäjoki in a match that ended 0-0. The first match ended 1-1 this season and those draws are the first ever draws in the history between these teams.

It was a game with two halves as SJK dominated the first half but then got tired in the second and VPS took over and nearly won the game. VPS has not lost in six games but in their last few matches they have not really been playing that well, thus drawing their last two. They are an average home team with a 4-3-3 record. They did not sign any new players during the transfer window but at the moment they are playing well enough to challenge for Euro cup place.

SJK had a lot of activity during the transfer window and they even signed an experienced central defender Kadio who should be a big help for their young defense. Now their other new players are also a bit more match fit so their performances should improve sooner or later. They have been an awful away team as they have only one win so far and even that was on neutral ground against TPS right at the start of the season.
