RICH FIDLER - Thursday, December 3, 2009
Coming off a disappointing 3-2 loss on the road Monday night, Helmond Sport will look to rebound when they host MVV Maastricht on Friday.
American Charles Kazlauskas, who scored a goal in defeat on Monday, will once again start in midfield for the home team.
Head coach Jürgen Streppel will be without midfielder Sjaak Lettinga and defender Sjoerd Winkens, both of whom continue to recover from long term injuries.
Midfielder Sjaak Lettinga didn't play on Monday against the Go Ahead Eagles due to injury, and his availability for Friday will be a game time decision.
The visitors' Turkish head coach Fuat Çapa will be without strikers Güven Cavus and Sandro Spasojevic, as both continue to recover from injury.
Defender Philipp Haastrup and midfielder Faty Papy sit just a single yellow card away from suspension so both of them will have to watch their steps as visitors on Friday.
Striker Daniël Gomez currently leads the team with eight goals on the season, seven goals behind Jupiler League leading scorer Fabio Caracciolo of FC Den Bosch.
