October 2013 Roundup
Another consistent month for our boys saw them climb to 2nd in the league, only a point behind the top spot, and also saw them progress in the Europa League and the Dutch Cup, as the domestic and European treble remains within reach. We caught up with this month's player of the month Sitjn Schaars, to talk about his season so far
Hey Stijn, how does it feel to be voted the fan's player of the month?
It's a great feeling! I give my all every time i'm out on that pitch, and while I may not score many goals, it's great to have my efforts recognised!
For you, what was the best moment of this month?
Probably the 4-2 win over Wigan - it guaranteed us qualification in Europe, and meant that the Red Bull game is a dead rubber for both teams, and maybe we can give some of the younger guys a chance to play on the big stage!
So Stijn, November and December are both massive months for the club; what do you see as being the biggest game for you in that time?
I'd have to say the Dutch Cup game against Ajax on December the 18th....It's only the 4th round, and to go out at that stage would be heartbreaking for everybody...We want to push on as far as possible in all competitions this season, and the Dutch Cup is high on our list of priorities!
