Both Haka and IFK Mariehamn will be looking to bounce back to winning ways in Veikkausliiga when they face off at Tehtaan Kentta in their Matchday 10 tie on Saturday.
Haka have made an inconsistent run in Veikkausliiga this season with the side claiming three victories, two draws and suffering five defeats from their 10 games to collect 11 points which have left them in the relegation half in seventh.
Just one point is keeping Teemu Tainio’s side from the Championship half of the table and they will be hoping to break into the half with a victory on Saturday. They have won two and drawn one of their last three matches across all competitions and should be confident of claiming maximum points in the Saturday’s clash.
Meanwhile IFK Mariehamn have made a poor campaign this season with the side winning just one of their last nine matches, picking up four draws while suffering four defeat the run, and currently sit second from bottom with seven points.
They head into the match in a poor form having won just one of their last six matches across all competitions, suffering four defeats from the run. All the four defeats have come in the Veikkausliiga where they have failed to win their last five, picking up just one draw in the run.
Daniel Norrmen’s side will now be looking to bounce back to winning ways as they look to get their Veikkausliiga campaign back on track. However, they have fallen to Haka in three of their last four meetings and will require a lot of effort to come away with anything from the Saturday tie.
