Losing 2-0 away to KuPS won't leave the Lahti squad too downbeat, given the former sits a full 14 places above them in the league.
Having conceded 7 goals and scored just 3 in their last 6 games, they have been very fortunate to pick up 6 points. They have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 games, and they have only kept 2 clean sheets in their last 6 games at home.
They've had a poor run of form at Lahden Stadion recently, losing 3 of their last 6 home games and managing only 1 win.

The 3-1 home defeat to Honka will not have sat easily with the AC Oulu squad, who would not have been pleased to squander all three points.
Ricardo Duarte will be quite satisfied with his squad's offensive prowess in recent performances. They have managed to notch up 6 goals from their last 6 outings. However, the manager will know they have work to do at the back where they have let in 11 goals and, as a result, lost some important points. Their goal scoring streak away from home now stands at 18 games in a row, but they've failed to keep a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 when on their travels.
They have had a good run of form away from home recently, unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 games on the road and picking up 3 wins along the way.
With 4 goals scored in his last 6 away games for AC Oulu, Otso Liimatta will be looking to add more goals against Lahti in this match.
Lahti vs AC Oulu Head to head
The last league encounter between these two sides concluded with a 2-1 win for AC Oulu.
It's been a long time since Lahti at home has managed to find the back of the Oulu net, having failed to score against them in their last 4 encounters at Lahden Stadion. In their past 5 meetings, Oulu's defence has been pretty stingy, only conceding 1 goal, so Mustat kuhnurit will have to take their chances when they come.
Oulu have built up an impressive record in the league against Lahti, going unbeaten in their last 6 meetings.
