RoPS who has had quite a lot of change in their playing squad is currently 9th, one point behind SJK.

RoPS lost both David Addy and Robert Taylor earlier and signed Charlie Trafford and Pablo Gonzalez. Now this week Saku Ylätupa went back to his parent club HJK and eventually signed with Ajax. To replace him they signed another HJK player, Lassi Lappalainen. All in all, their midfield seems to be stronger and Lappalainen can really help their offense. RoPS has been a good home team this eason with 16 points sfrom their 9 home games so far.

SJK has had their own change of playing staff as they signed Vahid Hambo, Jonas Sundman and Kaine Sheppard. They also released Facundo as he did not meet the expectations set to him. SJK comes into this match having won their last two games against PS Kemi and SJK. SJK will have almost all players available with the exception of the long term injured Richie Dorman and Matej Hradecky. Dani Hatakka and Johannes Laaksonen who missed the last game return to the line-up.

SJK has the edge when it comes to the games against RoPS. They beat them already twice this season. First in the Cup and then in the league in Seinäjoki 3-0. RoPS beat them them in 2015 but since then SJK has won 5 and drawn once.

Starting line ups:
RoPS: Reguero – Väisänen, Tatomirovic, Hämäläinen, Hyvärinen – Okkonen, Trafford – Muinonen, Eze, Gonzalez – Roiha
SJK: Aksalu – Hurme, Bardanca, Vales, Anton – Malolo, Hetemaj – Sarajärvi, Klinga, Zeneli – Arimany


SJK is in better form and they have the history against RoPS. All these changes of personnel at RoPS might affect them slightly that they are not completely fully ready. Away win.
