📰 Team News: Den Bosch
From a largely available group of players, there is only a single fitness problem for the Den Bosch gaffer William van Overbeek to contend with. Jordy van der Winden (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
In this game, De Graafschap are likely to have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the other end, Den Bosch will be up against it to score although we do reckon that they could well end up hitting back at some stage, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a 3-1 win for De Graafschap after 90 minutes.
