Veikkausliiga Round 13 Preview (Part 3)

No, it’s not over yet. The last game of round 13 will be played on Wednesday as TPS host VPS.
(It is quite interesting, by the way, that even though Veikkausliiga are trying to avoid scheduling games on so many days, the completion of round 13 has taken five days).

VPS are occupying the 8th position in the league table and TPS are trailing them by one point. The season has been disappointing and disastrous at times for TPS, but if they win tonight, they will reach 20 points – which is exactly the same number of points Tepsi had last year after 13 games.
TPS head coach Martti Kuusela surprised by saying that Jani Sarajärvi is the only player who is definitely not fit to play, meaning Christian Gyan, Janne Vellamo, Chris Cleaver and Simo Valakari could all return – either on the pitch or on the bench. Kiko is missing due to suspension though.

TPS have had problems with finishing and will need to find a cure tonight, as VPS have only conceded on six occasions during the ongoing campaign. However, VPS have only scored nine goals – only KooTeePee have fewer goals to their name in the league. Most likely it will not be a high-scoring game, so the team who make better use of scoring chances will probably win.

The sun is shining and the temperature is somewhere around 25 degrees celsius, so perhaps they will break 5000 in attendance today?
