Paul Robinson makes a rare trip to Finland this afternoon and that means he must have something special up his sleeve...

"TPS have only been beaten twice, but they have drawn as many games as they have won – including three of their last four."

TPS v Haka
Saturday July 15, 15:00 BST

This is a Finnish Ykkonen fixture which is the second tier of Finland's football leagues. There are 10 clubs in the division and we are 12 games in to a 27 game season.

As things stand, the Turko based hosts are in fourth place with 20 points - which is four points adrift of second and seven behind the leaders. The winners earn automatic promotion and the runners-up go into a play-off.

TPS have only been beaten twice, but they have drawn as many games as they have won - including three of their last four. It's also interesting to note that this is the second meeting of this pair on this ground this term, and the previous encounter finished 1-1 - with TPS trailing 1-0 until Haka were reduced to 10 men before half-time.

The visitors are two places below their opponents in the table, but there are only four points between them. They come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw at EIF, which was a much needed tonic following a 5-1 home defeat to Oulu the week before.

What I like most about this selection is that Keith Armstrong's men have only been beaten once on their travels this term and that came in their opening away fixture at their apparent nemesis, Oulu. Since then it's been a win and four draws, including the aforementioned one at TPS.

I have great faith in this pick, so with TPS trading at around the [1.78] mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.
