Team Information, Heerenveen vs Volendam Lineups and Preview

Heerenveen

The home team is once again in a position to fight for a promotion playoffs spot that would allow them to qualify for Europe. Heerenveen is four points away from the seventh-placed Utrecht, and with seven more games to go, there isn't much time for the hosts to achieve that goal. Joost van Aken is the only player injured for Heerenveen while there is some doubt whether Andries Noppert and Sven van Beek will be able to play after suffering through some health issues.

Probable lineup: Mous, van Ewijk, Van Ottele, Bocnhriewicz, Kohlert, Haye, Tahiri, Olsson, van Amersfoort, Sahraoui, van Hooijdonk.

Volendam

One of the youngest squads in Eredivisie was also a top favorite for relegation. However, something significantly changed about the Volendam team in the second part of the season as of now, they have a great chance of surviving the season and living to fight another day in the top division. With two wins out of their last four matches, Volendam is in a good run of form and will look to add some extra points in this away tie to Heerenveen. The visitors don't have any injury issues at this time.

Probable lineup: Stankovic, Buur, Plat, Benamar, Mbuyamba, Murkin, van Mieghem, Eiting, Twigt, Oristanio, Veerman.

Player to Watch: Sydney van Hooijdonk

The versatile striker born and raised in Breda is Heerenveen's top goalscorer this season with 11 goals to his credit. He delivered a single assist as well while playing in 26 matches. With Heerenveen's form on and down a level in the last couple of months, van Hooijdonk offered some much-needed stability at the forward position.
