Sarpsborg are without Jorgen Horn but have no suspensions to concern them ahead of this match.
Haugesund are missing the injured Fredrik Knudsen but aside from that they have a fully fit squad.
Injured/unavailable: Jorgen Horn (unspecified)

MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Sarpsborg lost 3-0 away against Viking in their last league match, a game in which they failed to compete with the home side’s attacking thrust and desire to win. The loss in Stavanger also halted a four-game unbeaten run for Sarpsborg, a sequence that include three wins and one draw. Although, some comfort for Sarpsborg can be garnered from a two-match winning run at home.
Haugesund ended a run of four games without a win – and three straight defeats – with a morale-boosting 1-0 home victory over Rosenborg in round ten. Nicklas Sandberg scored a 9th minute penalty to give the hosts all three points and in the process just their second home win of the season. That goal was Sandberg’s 4th of the season, and he is one of only three scorers for Haugesund this year. Ibrahima Wadji made a return from a long suspension in the game against Rosneborg and the striker could certainly help his club in the scoring department.
If you can excuse the disappointing loss they suffered last time out, then I think Sarpsborg can get back to winning ways in this game – I will predict a home win.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO – LOW
There have been no goalless meetings between these teams in any of their last five league meetings and only two of those contained 2.5 total goals or more. I will predict another low scoring encounter today.
HEAD TO HEAD
Three of the last four matches between Sarpsborg and Haugesund have finished in draws; they include both games last season which finished 1-1.
