RICH FIDLER - Thursday, April 8, 2010
Following last weekend's 1-0 home loss to previously last place Telstar, Helmond Sport will head on the road to face FC Dordrecht on Friday evening.
American Charles Kazlauskas will take his normal place in midfield, with early season starter Daniël Guijo-Velasco back from injury and lining up alongside the Milwaukee native in the midfield.
Jürgen Streppel could welcome Bruno Fernandes de Brito back to his midfield as well. The Brazilian is showing promising signs of returning to full form after his recovery from a lower body injury.
Dordrecht and Helmond faught to a 1-1 draw in late August at De Braak thanks to goals from the visitors Genero Zeefuik and de Brito for the home team.
Gert Kruys leads the "Sheep Heads" from the bench while midfielder Juanito Sequeira is the team captain, while Dutch striker Moussa Kalisse tops the team with 12 goals on the season.
Dordrecht is coming off a odd scoreless draw against FC Omniworld, which started on Friday evening and wrapped up Monday after the stadium lights stopped working in the 49th minute.
It was a welcome result for a team that has struggled in the final period of Jupiler League action - losing five straight before getting a decent result on Monday.
