JJK Jyvaskyla vs Mariehamn by Isaiah
JJK Jyvaskyla lost easy and fair away to Jaro with the score of 3:0, where they had a terrible first half and accepted two goals, while in the second half they were improved significantly and deserved at least a goal.
After this result JJK Jyvaskyla has now the worst defense in the league and this is the reason that they remain low in the league standings. They are to the bottom of the league table together with Lahti, but everyone is optimistic that they will rise higher soon as their roster is not that bad. Anyway, after the recent results, coach Kari Martonen is expected to be sacked if things will not change soon for JJK, while the fans have lost confidence in him. Striker Markkanen (2 games) overcame his injury and he is available, while winger Poutiainen (11 games) is doubtful.
Mariehamn won very difficult according to the match reports against Rovaniemi at home with the score of 1:0 in a very tight game. Rovaniemi did not hold back and tried for a goal, while Mariehamn failed to create opportunities for goals.
Mariehamn have a better record away from home, where they rely on counterattacks and score easily, as the only game they did not scored was against Helsinki. They have a quality midfield line that can create opportunities and make their attack dangerous. No problems with absents for Mariehamn.
I think that JJK Jyvaskyla is wronged by their position to the league standings, and it is time to get their first win at home. A fully fit attacking line with Wusu, Innanen and Manninen can be dangerous for any team of Veikkausliiga.
