Peter Bosz is determined to wash away with his team the hangover from the defeat in Nijmegen. The head coach leaves no doubt about that. Two days after the away game with NEC, another visit to Excelsior Rotterdam awaits.

The 3-1 loss at the Goffert Stadium also caused disappointment in the selection, Bosz assures. "It was definitely down to us and we can do better. The sharpness you need was not there. It was a bit quieter than normal at training. You then have to make sure that such a game is concluded well and we did that. We drew a line under it and then discussed Excelsior."

No panic
The Head Coach realizes that the final game of the Eredivisie is approaching, but let it be known that his selection is used to dealing with pressure at a top club. "Now
the important thing is to win the 28th game in the Eredivisie again. We are not panicking. It's incredibly clever that we haven't lost 27 games in a row, but the defeat against NEC was justified. There's no reason to change, so we're not going to. We have to keep going and tomorrow we have Excelsior in front of us, whom we have to beat."

The aftermath of Saturday afternoon led to two injuries within the A-selection. "Hirving Lozano will not be there against Excelsior, as he was substituted after an hour due to an injury sustained. We will fill that gap within our own selection. Ismael Saibari indicated after the warm-up in Nijmegen that he didn't quite trust it, therefore we decided to keep him on the bench against NEC. He will unfortunately not be there in Rotterdam either."

However, there is also good news. "For now, Noa Lang 's recovery is going as planned and there is still a chance that he will join later in the season," Bosz concluded the press conference.
