Heracles host Fortuna Sittard in the Eredivisie on Friday. Goals are expected in Almelo with Rai Vloet set to add to his eight goals this season.

Heracles Form


Heracles are battling in the Eredivisie after winning two of their opening 11 matches of the season. They won 3-0 at home against Telstar in the KNVB Beker before a 4-1 home win against Utrecht.

Frank Wormuth’s side suffered a tough 3-2 loss at VVV-Venlo after Adrian Szöke was sent off in the first half. They then took on some of the big guns in the Netherlands and picked up a point in three matches.

Heracles lost 5-0 at Ajax and 2-1 against AZ Alkmaar. They earned a hard fought 0-0 draw at Feyenoord on Sunday after striker Sinan Bakis was sent off in the 66th minute.

Heracles Team News


Right back Navajo Bakboord remains out with a cruciate ligament rupture and Noah Fadiga is injured. Expect Tim Breukers to stay in the starting side.

Left back Jeff Hardeveld and winger Silvester van der Water are is injured. 

Heracles’s Rai Vloet has scored six goals in his last six home matches in all competitions. He should start up front again with Sinan Bakis suspended.
