Team News: Willem II
Ringo Meerveld (Knee Surgery), Ché Nunnely (Torn Knee Ligament) and Thijs Oosting (Knee Injury) won’t be able to feature for Willem II boss Kevin Hofland.
Team News: FC Utrecht
FC Utrecht boss Rick Kruys has some current player fitness concerns. Christopher Mamengi (Knee Injury), Tommy St. Jago (Knee Injury), Henk Veerman (Ankle Injury), Fabian de Keijzer (Unknown Injury), Naoki Maeda (Ankle Fracture) and Bart Ramselaar (Knee Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We feel that Willem II may not find it easy to find the net against this FC Utrecht outfit who we think should just have the edge.
We’re therefore expecting a good battle with a 0-1 winning score for FC Utrecht when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
