RICH FIDLER - Thursday, April 22, 2010
Coming off a disappointing 2-0 loss to Cambuur Leeuwarden last Friday, Helmond will host FC Emmen on Friday evening in their last game of the season.
Helmond head coach Jürgen Streppel will once again slot Charles Kazlauskas into the starting midfield, a spot he has reserved for the American the entire season.
He willl be joined in the midfield by Daniël Guijo-Velasco, who recently recovered from injury, and could also play alongside Bruno Fernandes de Brito. The Brazilian made his first appearance as an 86th minute substitute in Friday's loss.
Defender Jeroen Veldmate and striker Joost Habraken will be unavailable for the home team in their final game due to injuries.
When these same two teams faced each other in late September, it was an 65th minute goal from Kazlauskas that lead the visitors to a 3-1 romp over Emmen.
The visitors this time currently sit in the bottom third of the standings, and are coming off their own loss, a 3-0 drubbing in their final home game of the season to FC Zwolle.
Head coach Harry Sinkgraven will lead "The Kannibals" in to Stadion De Braak with strikers Hans Denissen and Ruud Ter Heide both leading the team with 12 goals each.
