Team News: Jong PSV
The Jong PSV manager Wil Boessen will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all before this match with a completely injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: De Graafschap
Out of a mainly available squad, there is just the sole fitness problem for the De Graafschap boss Jan Vreman to be concerned about. Devin Haen (Metatarsal Fracture) won’t be playing here.
Our thinking is that De Graafschap have the ability to have the majority of the possession and should turn some of their chances into goals.
At the other end, Jong PSV may well find it hard scoring goals of their own but we think it’s quite likely that they will be hitting back at some stage.
Accordingly, we see a comfortable 1-3 win for De Graafschap at the end of this one.
