Round 11 of the league will see a clash between teams who are 3rd and 4th respectively.
Last season was a time to forget for the fans and players of FC Twente. The former Eredivisie champs finished 18th in the top tier and was relegated. Then manager Gertjan Verbeek was sacked and Marino Pusic was appointed as interim manager.
The Reds and the Sheepheads have equal points but differ on slight goal difference. Both of them have 6 wins in 10 rounds played.
The coach will be happy with the way his team played in the last match in the league. They thrashed Jong Utrecht in an away game that ended 6-1.A hat-trick from forward Jari Oosterwijk was the highlight. Javier Espinosa scored a brace also.
The strength of the home side is their midfield, a Spanish-German combo. Espinosa, Aitor and Tim Holscher have all found the net this season and controlled the game very well.
The away side finished 9th last season and Coach Michele Santoni will want a better result this time around.
Niek Vossebelt is a Dutch midfield player who has scored 6 goals in 9 games for the side from Almere.
Coach Santoni will want his team to perform better than they did in the last game which was a defeat at home to league leaders Eagles.
