The Silkeborg & Viborg managers K. Nielsen and J. Neestrup Hansen are both dreading and looking forward to this decisive game in the upper regions of the First Division league table.

Silkeborg form and stats

Perfect First Division season at home so far for Silkeborg, who have the most scored goals (20) in First Division, 3 wins from 3 appearances. Silkeborg has won so many consecutive home games (four in a row) that they struggle to remember the last time points were lost here at JYSK park. We remember; it was SønderjyskE.

Silkeborg enjoyed a nice away win last time out, playing at Hvidovre's place. The match ended 5-1. A Landspokal Cup defeat was the result before that one, 1-2 away at Esbjerg.

As indicated by the result mentioned above, Silkeborg played a great game against Hvidovre and beat them comfortably. Expectations are high for this one.

The manager K. Nielsen will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Fremad Amager in only three days.

Goals are plentiful at JYSK park in the league this season as Silkeborg has scored 9 goals here in 3 home games. Silkeborg have conceded 3 in these home matches.

Viborg form and stats

Things could have gone better for Viborg in their First Division away matches, but 5 points from 3 games is all right.
