Team News: Den Bosch
Teun van Grunsven (Knock), Rik Mulders (Knock), Najim Haidary (Knock), Adrien Bongiovanni (Shoulder Injury), Paco van Moorsel (Calf Injury), Ryan Lambert (Knock), Roy Kuijpers (Hamstring Injury), Christophe van Zutphen (Knock) and Jordy van der Winden (Knee Surgery) won’t be playing for Den Bosch boss Jack de Gier.
Team News: SC Cambuur
Cambuur boss Henk de Jong has to currently contend with reduced team options. Robin Maulun (Ankle Injury), Jamie Jacobs (Knock), Mitchel Paulissen (Hamstring Injury) and Stanley Akoy (Knee Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re of the opinion that Den Bosch have the firepower to get a goal against this SC Cambuur lineup, although just one goal probably won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We therefore reckon that it will be a close game with a 1-2 victory for SC Cambuur by the conclusion of the game. Expecting it to be very competitive.
