Mjondalen managed a 1-1 draw against Haugesund, taking their second point of the last five matches. However, some strong performances earlier in the season – and some lacklustre opponents – mean that they are eleventh in the table, keeping in touch with teams above them. Sandefjord on the other hand are still desperately last with only seven points after thirteen games going into this round. The 0-0 draw against Lillestrom, from a match that was just as anaemic as the result suggests, was their first point following nine consecutive defeats. Both sides are struggling at the moment, and are likely to do so even after this game. And although home advantage might give some advantage to Mjondalen, the fact is that last season, Sandefjord held well against them in the league matches in the second division.
