Team News: Skive IK
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Skive IK manager Thomas Røll Larsen to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Sebastian Buch (Unknown Injury) is out of contention.
Team News: Vendsyssel FF
Vendsyssel manager Johnny Mølby has to currently contend with reduced team options. Sören Henriksen (Heart Condition), Mikkel Agger (Hamstring Injury) and Christoffer Boateng (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) are not able to play.
We’re thinking that Vendsyssel FF are certainly able to get a goal against this Skive IK lineup, but it possibly won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We are anticipating a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Skive IK at full-time. It’s a very tough call.
