PREVIEW: FC TWENTE - VITESSE
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, February 11, 2011
Oguchi Onyewu and FC Twente will hope to potentially move into first place in the Eredivisie on Saturday when they host Vitesse who are only two points clear of the relegations zone.

Onyewu is likely to return to action for Twente. The US international has not played since January 26th when he was subbed out of a cup game against PSV in the first half with a back injury.

FC Twente has not lost in league play since league play resumed after the winter break. During that time they have won three games but suffered a draw last weekend against Utrecht. They are currently tied for first on points with PSV in the Eredivisie but trail by a large margin on goal differential.

While Vitesse have struggled this season, they have played well in their last two matched. On January 29th, they cruised to a convincing 5-2 victory over Roda and last week they drew Feyenoord 1-1 at home.

FC Twente will be without Marc Janko, Dwight Tiendalli and Rasmus Bengtsson who are all out with short term injuries.

Vitesse will most likely be without Turkish forward Sinan Kaloglu and Irish striker Wilfried Bony who both missed training on Friday.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
