ROTTERDAM – Third goalkeeper Leonard Nienhuis is Thursday, again under the bar at Sparta in the important first final match of the play-offs for promotion/relegation against FC Emmen.
Roy Kortsmit and Jannik Huth, respectively, first and second choice, are still injured. That said trainer Dick Advocaat in the run-up to the meeting in Emmen.
Nienhuis keepte also in the return of the previous round against FC Dordrecht. That game on The Castle ended in 2-2, after Sparta, the away game 2-1, had won.
Lawyer said on Omroep rotterdam-Rijnmond that the pressure at Sparta is that, because the club is fighting against relegation. ,,We must win in the premier league. For FC Emmen would be promotional only, but great. If Sparta falls then, since there are many consequences connected with it. Let’s hope it’s not going to happen. For the fans and everyone”, says the experienced Hague coach.
