Heracles will hope to continue their winning run on Sunday when they play host to Emmen at Polman Stadion. After that humiliating defeat to Willem in August which is their only defeat this season, Heracles have been firing all cylinders.
They have bounce back with consecutive victories, 3-2 against AZ, 5-3 against Heerenveen, 4-0 against De Graafschap and 2-1 against De Bosch in KNVB cup in the midweek. Their huge scoring capabilities have helped as they have outscored their opponents in all their victories.
Heracles are the second highest scoring team so far in Eredivisie with 17 goals from 6 games. However, they are among the sides that have conceded a lot of goals, with 13 goals conceded in 6 games. A home in on Sunday afternoon will give them their 5th straight win in all competitions.
Emmen have been having a fluctuating form this season, alternating defeats and victories. They have won 3 games in all competitions and lost 3, drawn once.
Emmen will enter this game from a 3-1 win in the midweek KNVB cup, this is a good bounce back from the home defeat against Zwolle last week. Emmen were unable to score in that game against Zwolle as Dekker’s 30th minute goal was enough to deny Emmen a point in that game.
Emmen are in the 10th spot in the Eredivisie table with 7 points, they will be hoping for a good result to go up further.
