Trainer Henk de Jong hopes that the players and supporters of The County Tuesday, one last time, everything can give in return against Sparta Rotterdam. The team from Doetinchem is after the 1-2 victory of Saturday at the People close to enforcement in the Eredivisie.
“We have to be Tuesday, not in the pants pooping and full throttle”, says the trainer on the website of his club. “The supporters have, and we can go through them screaming. That the boys also needed, because the forces are the last weeks which subsided.”
By the 1-2 victory has The County in a good position. Sparta will be at least two times, need to score to have a chance at a promotion.
“It is not ready yet and we’re not there yet”, warns The Young. “We must have our wits there keep, keep quiet, and with both legs remain on the ground.”

“In the end, I’m happy with five minutes of injury time’
Saw it there Saturday for a long time bleak for the ‘Superboeren’, because Sparta came through Adil Auassar the early lead. In the second half drew Nabil Bahoui for the equalizer, and shortly thereafter had to Sparta with ten man after two times, yellow for Bart friend’s.
In the third minute of stoppage time gave Youssef El Jebli his crew with a used kick and the victory, and a very good starting position for the return at De Vijverberg.
“After ninety minutes, the sign at the fourth official up and then I thought: five minutes injury time, where do you get it away? In the end I am very happy with it, haha,” laughs The Young.
Defeat at Fraser
His co-trainer Henk Fraser told me that the 1-2 in injury time “quite arrived”. “It was not a spectacular match, but we were equivalent. It is annoying that you still lose,” said Fraser at RTV Rijnmond.
The coach of Sparta realizes that it will be difficult to promote. “The County is home to very difficult to beat. On the other hand: it’s all or nothing, we know that we are full.”
Nevertheless wants Fraser to a full on attack play in Doetinchem. “We are going to be quite realistic to go. If I have five or six strikers go and play, then I play The County only in the map.”
“We will very carefully have to attacks, that’s clear. But that we have two times to score, is also clear.”
The return between De Graafschap and Sparta Rotterdam begins Tuesday at 20.45 hours at The Vijverberg.
