Josh Wicks and Mason Trafford look to help IFK Mariehamn as they take on Veikkausliiga power Inter Turku while Jeremy Vuolo and AC Oulu finish their season against Daniel Stevens and PS Kemi Kings.
IFK Mariehamn - Inter Turku
Josh Wicks and Mason Trafford hope to help IFK Mariehamn as they take on Inter Turku.
Wicks and Trafford both started and went the distance in Mariehamn's big win over Jaro on Monday.
Prior to Monday's win, Mariehamn had gone five games winless. They look to keep their momentum this weekend.
Inter Turku are currently in a Europa League spot but they will need to finish the season strong to ensure their place.
Aleksei Kangaskolkka, Ekhiabhi Okodugha, Mikko Paatelainen, and Markus Paatelainen are all questionable due to injury for Mariehamn.
KuPS - RoPS
Etchu Tabe and RoPS take on KuPS in Veikkausliiga action this weekend.
Tabe started and went the distance in RoPS' big win over TPS last week. He is likely to start once again against KuPS.
RoPS has won three out of their last four games and is making a strong charge to avoid relegation. With three games left they are seven points from safety.
KuPS are in no danger of relegation but have no chance of taking a Europa League spot. They have lost two in a row so they will want to reverse their luck and finish the season strong.
Eetu Muinonen is questionable to play for RoPS because of injury.
AC Oulu - PS Kemi Kings
Jeremy Vuolo and AC Oulu take on Daniel Stevens, Kyle Luetkehans, and PS Kemi Kings.
Vuolo started and went the distance in Oulu's last game and he should get the start once again. Stevens and Luetkehans also went the distance for Kemi and it is likely they will feature this weekend.
With one game left in the season, Oulu is out of the promotion race. They have only lost once in their last ten games so they look to finish the season on a high note.
Kemi have officially been relegated and are hoping to finish the season with a win.
Guiseppe Funicello is not likely to feature in VPS' game against Honka
Kellan Wilson looks to be on the bench as HIFK take on PK-35.
