Team News: De Graafschap
There aren’t many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the De Graafschap manager Mike Snoei to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Jonathan Vergara Berrio (Knee Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: FC Dordrecht
Dordrecht manager Jan Zoutman has to choose a team with limited availability. Liam Bossin (Thigh Problems), Devon Koswal (Knock), Robin Polley (Knee Injury), Kevin Vermeulen (Knee Injury) and Mikael Törset Johnsen (Hamstring Injury) are not able to play.
Our assessment is that De Graafschap should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
Conversely, FC Dordrecht may well find it hard getting goals but we do fancy them managing to get on the scoresheet.
Therefore, we are anticipating a fairly comfortable 3-1 victory for De Graafschap when the full-time whistle blows.
