GBK Kokkola is in a difficult situation with 2nd bottom place and 5 points behind Narpes Kraft, but with one game less. They have won only 2 games out of the last 10, but will give their heart to win some points and keep their dreams for survival in Kakkonen Group C. Important attacker Jokihaara is back in the team, and his appearance is extremely important. OTP practically finished the season in 5th place, without any ambition till the end of the season. Their unmotivated attitude was shown in their last three games when they lose at VIFK (odds for the guests were 9.00), draw against Kemi City (odds 8.00), and promoted SJK Akatemia. They give a chance to the reserve players and select the team for the next season. GBK has the motivation to fight in these match and should win at least a point to stay in the race for survival in the last 5 rounds.
