FF Jaro got an undeserved victory in the last round which moved them to 2nd place in the standings. That might changed though if KTP´s appeal goes through. FF Jaro scored their winning goal with a hand that the referee did not see. FC Haka is currently 4th with just 3 points behind Jaro.

FF Jaro is one of the favorites for promotion this season. They did not start their season too well losing to both KPV and HIFK, but are now undefeated in their last 5 games (3W 2 D). They missed several players in their last match against KTP, but they played well enough to keep a clean sheet. They should have not gotten then win though as Moses clearly played the ball with his hand for the goal. Jaro has played only three home games so far and they have a 1-1-1 record. Last season Jaro was 4-5-5 at home so they are not usually a strong home side. Jaro has kept a clean sheet in their last 4 games.

FC Haka has had an inconsistent season with a 3-2-3 record. But as this is a tight league, that record earns them the 4th position. If they can beat Jaro here, they can move to 2nd and be contention for promotion. FC Haka has a young team and now they lost their main striker Nganbe Nganbe for the season so it is difficult to see them earning promotion this year. They are good enough to finish in the top half of the table though. Last season they were difficult to beat away from home but they did not win many games either with a 2-8-3 record. This season they are yet to win a game on the road with a 0-2-1 record.
