Helmond Sport is still missing 8 players against NAC Breda on Friday night, including the suspended Arno van Killegum. However, Coach Bob Peters certainly isn’t giving up. If it were up to him, Helmond Sport would get more and more faces in the duels to come. “With high intensity and forward pressure.”
Absentee list is not easy in De Brac. The influenza virus is spreading in the Netherlands and has also affected Helmond Sport: Elmo Levetink is still not there, Robin Mantell has also been killed. Daniel Brydijk, Michael Chacon, Chris Kaloleka and Gil Goslink were also injured. The latter is already training, but the match against NAC is still early. Just like Gaétan Bosiers, whose wisdom teeth – “we say wisdom teeth” – were extracted. Peters remains calm. “It’s not about the wounded, it’s about the healthy. We have enough.”
Of course we will make mistakes, but I see a group here that want to learn and are very motivated
Like David Mistravovich. The Swiss summer acquisition played more minutes in Venlo than he did in the rest of the season. “He played very far in the first half, but after the break he lost. He’s strong in duels, and a fighter,” midfielder Peters praised. The Belgian coach really gives his players confidence. He also cites the second half in Venlo in particular, when Helmond Sport dared to play football up front. “This is what we want to show more often. Of course we will still make mistakes, but I see a group here who want to learn and are very motivated.”
However, it did not open a box of goals against 1,2,3, Helmond Sport is still the lowest scoring team in the first division. You can also change that: we want to ensure that we get more chances and get into the box more often. Then you automatically get more chances to score goals,” Peters says, positive as it gets.
The coach communicates a lot with his players, including Van Keilegom, who received an unfortunate red card against VVV-Venlo for a violent tackle and was suspended for two matches. “A striker stepping in is never a good idea, Arnaud knows it himself. He’s usually the best boy in the class, and now it looks worse than it is. That’s why we also accepted the KNVB’s settlement proposal.”
Possible lineup: Havekotte. van Verken, van den Einden, van der Meer, van Hof; The Lion, Mastravic of Sanusi, Van Ogen, Candle; Arias.
