De Graafschap ended their winless streak in the Eredivisie last weekend as they defeated Willem II 2-1 at home. This Saturday, will hope to continue with the winning mentality as they play host to Heerenveen at De Vijverberg.

After their surprise and shocking win over Feyenoord in the opening game, De Graafschap has been out of luck for the subsequent 5 games. They have lost to NAC, Groningen, VVV and Heracles; and drew with Emmen.

However, things changed for De Graafschap last week as they grabbed a win in the KNVB Cup and also in the weekend Eredivisie. This has now kept them in 13th spot with 7 points, they will be hoping to get their 3rd win of the season in thus game.

Heerenveen have had more draws than any team so far this season, they have drawn 4 of the 7 games played. Heerenveen are in same point with their host, having won once and drawn 4 times to accumulate 7 points.

Heerenveen have only lost to Feyenoord and Heracles but we must admit that most of their games have been a high-scoring affair. They have failed to outscore their opponents in most cases which have resulted to either draw or defeats.

Heerenveen have scored 15 goals, only the top 5 teams have scored more than them. They have also conceded a lot too, they are only better than NAC as they have conceded 18 goals in 7 games this term. If they can guard their defense in this game, they will surely go home with 3 points.
