BRENDAN WIMBERLY - Thursday, October 18, 2012
Charles Kazlauskas and Helmond hope the international break cured their woes as they look for their first win in their last five attempts.
Helmond Sport - Go Ahead Eagles
Helmond Sport and Charles Kazlauskas get back to action on Friday when they host Go Ahead Eagles in a battle between two teams in the top half of Eerste Divisie standing's.
The Milwaukee native has been an integral part of Helmond's hot start which finds them in third place. Despite their high standing, Helmond have stumbled lately. After winning their first five games this season, Helmond have gone winless over their last four, picking up two draws in the process.
On the other end of the field, Eagles have played very well over the last four matches, winning three, including a victory over Eredivisie side VV Venlo in the Dutch Cup.
Helmond received bad news on the injury front this week, as 20-year old starlet Aart Verberne was ruled out of action for the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his knee.
Eagles are not reporting any injuries or suspensions for the match.
Due to picking up a foolish red card just before the international break, Altidore will be forced to sit AZ's matchup against Breda on Friday.
