The bottom side JJK who are the only team without a win will face VPS who have climbed surprisingly already to 2nd position. We consider JJK to be the worst team in the league but they are not totally bad. Defensively they have played many tight games and as long as they can keep the player errors to a minimum, they can challenge anyone in the league. They were unlucky not to get anything against FC Inter and in their last game they were able to hold back SJK for most of the game only to lose 1-0 in the end. VPS started their season badly by losing 5-0 to HJK in their opening game. They then lost 1-3 to SJK. After that though, they have been unbeaten winning 3 and drawing 2.

We originally wrote in our season preview that their defense is weaker than last season and that their offense is the same as last season which was weak even then. Their defense should improve a bit when they get Viitikko and Koskimaa back from injury but it is the resurrection of Jamaican forward Steven Morrissey that has lifted their offense. 5 Years ago Morrissey scored 15 goals in the Veikkausliiga which earned him a move to Denmark and Silkeborg but after that bad injuries had taken the best edge out of his game. Last season was the first in many years when he was able to play almost the whole season and he scored 5 goals. This season his game has changed a bit and he is now more of a creator than a finisher. He has been a part of several goals that VPS has scored this season. If he plays well, VPS plays well.
