Helmond Sport have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 matches.

Team News: Helmond Sport
Maxime De Bie (Ankle Injury), Dani Theunissen (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Kay van de Vorst (Metatarsal Fracture) aren’t available for Helmond manager Wil Boessen.
Team News: FC Oss
TOP Oss manager Klaas Wels has to choose a team with limited availability. Ruben Roosken (Knock), Grad Damen (Knock), Giovanni Büttner (Knock) and Sjoerd Overgoor (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will miss out on this game.
We think that FC Oss will need things to go their way to see themselves scoring against this Helmond Sport lineup who we think will likely manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive game with a 1-0 winning score for Helmond Sport at the end of the 90.
Hoping for a good game.
