Graafschap v Roda – Dutch Eredivisie
March 11 2016, De Vijverberg, 19:00 GMT+0
Graafschap is in a terrible position, being on the last place in the league and needing 11 points to get out of relegation zone something good needs to happen soon, if they do not wish to leave Dutch Eredivisie. Hosts have managed to only get 3 points in the last 5 matches and are coming into this match after 2 consecutive defeats against Heerenveen (0:1) and Zwolle (2:1).
Going into this match “Super Farmers” will be without Bannink, Quekel, Menting, Linhorst, Lammers and Smeets, who is considered a key midfielder.
Roda has double the amount of points of today’s hosts in this season. With 28 points, Roda is currently on 14th place, 6 points clear of relegation zone. I saw great improvement in “Miners” lately, especially on the road. The last away fixture ended in a win for Roda against Heracles (0:5), prior to that match there was another great performance against Feyenoord (2:2) in Den Haag and a win against Excelsior (0:1). As it can be seen Roda is a great traveller and will surely cause problems to today’s hosts.
Da Silva and Van Peppen will miss this match for visitors today. Beside them squad is all available.
Even though Graafschap need points badly I do not believe that will dramatically improve their performance today. Roda has proven themselves as a great traveller and I expect them to get another win to add to their away record.
Prediction: Roda +0
