MATHEW WAGNER - Tuesday, November 20, 2012
With only a two-match series between them and Eliterserien play next season, Kenneth di Vita Jensen and Ull/Kisa look to start off well at home against Sandnes Ulf on Wednesday.

In 2009, Ull/Kisa barely escaped relegation from the 2. Division, or the third tier of Norwegian soccer. The team has come a long way from there, gaining promotion into the second flight in 2011 and earning a berth in the final round of the promotion playoffs into Norway's top division this season.

On its way to this series, the hosts shocked Sandefjord and Bodø/Glimt, the third and fifth placed teams in the 1. Division respectively.

Sandnes Ulf, meanwhile, finished its season on Sunday with a 3-1 loss to Aalesund. Along with a Sogndal win, the loss doomed Sandnes Ulf to play for its life in the promotion playoffs.

The visitors' weakest link is its defense, which allowed the third worst total in the top division with 56 goals.

Forward Eirik Soltvedt is questionable for Ull/Kisa while Sandnes Ulf will be without captain Aksel Berget Skjølsvik, who missed the team's last two league matches due to a lingering injury.

Stein Thor Thorsteinsson is also questionable for Sandnes Ulf, as he and his wife are expecting the birth of their second child.
