Aiming to pick up a fifth Eredivisie victory on the bounce, Cambuur welcome Vitesse to the Cambuur-Stadion on Saturday.

On the other hand, the away side head into the game on a rough patch having won just one of their last five outings across all competitions.

Match preview

Cambuur secured a fourth consecutive away triumph by defeating fellow newcomers NEC 3-2 at the Goffertstadion on Friday.

Henk de Jong's men took the lead in the 17th minute through Jamie Jacobs but conceded quickfire goals from Edgar Barreto and Ali Akman to trail heading into the break, before second-half strikes from Roberts Uldrikis and Alex Bangura turned the game on its head.

With maximum points from each of their last four league outings, the Yellow-Blues have moved up to fifth place in the Eredivisie table and continue to impress since gaining promotion to the top flight.

Next up for them is the challenge of an opposing side who they have beaten just once in the previous seven meetings between the teams.

Having scored 13 goals in their last five matches, Saturday's hosts will be looking to put on another impressive attacking display.

Vitesse had to settle for a share of the spoils in their clash versus AZ Alkmaar on Sunday which ended goalless.

In a cagey and drab affair at the GelreDome, both teams were guilty of failing to find the cutting edge in attack.

The Arnhem-based club have dropped to sixth place on the log and are now 13 points behind current leaders Ajax.

Saturday's visitors, who have the second-best away record in the division so far, now set out to continue their fine run on the road.

Team News

Cambuur's David Sambissa sat out his side's victory over NEC due to a knock, and the defender is a doubt for this weekend's game.

The hosts will also have to make do with the absence of Marco Tol, who continues to battle with a knee problem.

Twenty-year-old Daan Reiziger is yet to feature for the away side this term due to a knee injury and is without a timetable regarding his return to action.

Million Manhoef has made two substitute appearances since making his comeback from a knee problem but could be given the nod right from the off this time.

Cambuur possible starting lineup:
Stevens; Schmidt, Mac-Intosch, Schouten, Bangura; Hoedemakers, Jacobs, Maulun, Doodeman, Kallon; Uldrikis

Vitesse possible starting lineup:
Schubert; Doekhi, Bazoer, Rasmussen; Yapi, Tronstad, Gboho, Bero, Dasa; Openda, Darfalou

We say: Cambuur 1-1 Vitesse

Separated by just one place and one point on the log, we expect both sides to go for all three points which should give rise to a keenly-contested affair. However, we are backing a share of the spoils with the teams settling for a point apiece.
