Fortuna Sittard host Sparta Rotterdam in a huge relegation six-pointer in a postponed fixture of Matchday No 23 on Saturday afternoon at Fortuna Sittard Stadion.

There are four teams separated by a single point right at the bottom of the Eredivisie standings. Fortuna Sittard and Sparta Rotterdam are among these four sides.

With only five rounds remaining before the end of the season, the tension can hardly be greater ahead of their head to head encounter.

Both outfits will enter the tie in high spirits. Fortuna Sittard managed to end a two-loss streak by holding the seventh-placed Utrecht to a 1-1 draw on the road.

Midfielder Zion Flemming bagged the leveler for Fortuna right at the hour-mark at Stadion Galgenwaard on the occasion.

Sittard generally offered a decent performance against the European hopefuls on the road. It is worth noting that Utrecht had a goal disallowed for a foul in the 89th-minute of the affair, though.

Sparta Rotterdam ended their three-game unbeaten run with a 2-1 defeat to champions Ajax last time out.

The team led by Hendrikus Fraser produced a fantastic resistance against the strongest team in the country.

They have also recently suffered a narrow loss to PSV (1-2) before the thread of two wins and a draw against Go Ahead Eagles, NEC, and Heerenveen.
