There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Strømsgodset IF gaffer Bjørn Ingebretsen to contend with from an otherwise complete group of players. Lars-Jörgen Salvesen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Herman Stengel and Halldor Stenevik.

Thanks to a completely injury-free squad ready to go, the Kristiansund manager Christian Michelsen has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
Kristiansund and Strømsgodset IF should both be able to find the back of the net at least once here although it’s difficult at this stage to select a clear winner.
