FC Twente coach on his side’s defeat to Vitesse Arnhem
FC Twenteen coach Pieter Sloot will lead his side against Vitese Arnhem, with the home side already three points adrift of third-placed Vitesde.
Twente will be without winger Jannik Venter (knee) for the second leg of the tie.
The Dutch side also lost to Vries in their previous encounter, in November last year.
“It’s disappointing, especially for Vites de Arnhem.
But it’s part of the game.
They have a lot of quality players.
I have confidence that we will play well,” Sloot told reporters.
“They have a good team and we have to be ready for them.
We need to keep that in mind and focus on the next match.”
Vites De Arnhem have won the last four meetings between the two sides, with Twente winning 1-0 in the first leg.
“The game will be decided in the last few minutes.
We will be very patient, and try to stay in the game,” said Sloot.
“We need to concentrate on the second game in Amsterdam and hopefully win the tie.”
Vries have won all five meetings between these sides since joining Vites in the summer of 2011.
Twenties striker Jos van der Hoorn has scored 10 goals in his last six league appearances for Vries.
