Team News: FC Oss
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the FC Oss gaffer Bob Peeters to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Roshon van Eijma (Achilles tendon problems) is sidelined.
Team News: De Graafschap
De Graafschap boss Reinier Robbemond has to choose a team with limited availability. Thomas Kleinpenning (Minor Knock), Johnatan Opoku (Head Injury), Danny Verbeek (Shoulder Injury), Hamza Bouihrouchane (Minor Knock), Milan Hilderink (Knock) and Ted van de Pavert (Cheekbone Fracture) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re inclined to think that FC Oss are dangerous enough to find the net against this De Graafschap outfit, however a single goal possibly won’t be good enough.
We’ve gone for a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 advantage for De Graafschap at the end of this one. Should be a good one.
