RICH FIDLER - Sunday, September 12, 2010
Helmond Sport returned home from a two game road trip to tie FC Eindhoven on Friday evening at De Braak.
Head coach Jürgen Streppel once again selected American Charles Kazlauskas to patrol the right flank for the full 90 minutes.
Brazilian Bruno Andrade continued his torrid start to the season, scoring for the fourth time in the young season.
Just seven minutes after the opening whistle the striker finished following defender Philipp Haastrup's race up the middle and cross from the right side.
The striker cooly bent the ball around the keeper to put the home team ahead.
Eindhoven striker Ratko Van Simpsen leveled the score in the 71st minute, picking the near corner with an excellent strike just inside the penalty area past a diving Robert Van Westerop.
Kazlauskas would pick up a yellow card just nine minutes later, his first of the young season.
Two minutes following his card, second-half substitute Vojtech Machek picked up a red card with a clumsy two-footed tackle along the bench sideline.
Helmond will head back on the road next Friday to face FC Emmen VV at Univé Stadion.
