Den Bosch will be looking for an improved result here after the 1-0 Eerste Divisie loss in their previous game against FC Eindhoven.
In that match, Den Bosch managed 51% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 4 on target. On the other side, FC Eindhoven had 15 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Joey Sleegers (91') scored for FC Eindhoven.
Den Bosch have been so strong in attack in recent times, hitting 18 goals past their opponents over the course of their last 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Blue White Dragons have also seen the aggregate sum of goals that have gone against them total 10.
Coming into this clash, Den Bosch are winless against Telstar in their last 3 league matches.
In their last fixture, Telstar drew 2-2 in the Eerste Divisie match with Jong PSV.
In that match, Telstar had 49% possession and 11 shots on goal with 5 on target. For Telstar, goals were scored by Glynor Plet (27') and Frank Korpershoek (63'). On the other side, Jong PSV had 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Nigel Thomas (34') and Emmanuel Matuta (92') scored for Jong PSV.
Telstar have been effective going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, scoring 7 times in their last 6 matches. Having said that, Witte Leeuwen have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same clashes. We shall soon find out whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game.
Taking a look at their past results, Telstar:
- have not been beaten by Den Bosch when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- are without a win away from home in their last 8 league games. It's not a good run at all.
Head to head
A glance at their past head to head clashes going back to 15/09/2017 tells us that Den Bosch have won 2 of them and Telstar 4, with the tally of drawn matches being 0.

Team News: Den Bosch
Rik Mulders (Knock), Christophe van Zutphen (Knock), Soufyan Ahannach (Minor Knock), Ringo Meerveld (Minor Knock), Najim Haidary (Knock), Adrien Bongiovanni (Shoulder Injury), Jordy van der Winden (Knee Surgery) and Teun van Grunsven (Knock) won’t be playing for Den Bosch manager Jack de Gier. Dwayne Green cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Telstar
Telstar manager Andries Jonker has some current player fitness concerns. Vincent Regeling (Knock), Hossein Zamani (Knock), Richelor Sprangers (Knock) and Yaël Liesdek (Knock) are those who can’t be considered.
We think that Den Bosch will have their work cut out to find the net against this Telstar team who we think will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 advantage for Telstar at the conclusion of the game.
