FC Twente step closer to title after narrow victory in the topper to Go Ahead

FC Twente Sunday, a big step towards the title in the Kitchen Champion Division. The leader won the topper on visit number three Go Ahead Eagles narrowly 1-2.

FC Twente seemed pleased to have to take with a 1-1-tie, but in the 81e minute made Aitor Cantalapiedra still for the winning 1-2, all he had needed the help of the grabbelende goalkeeper Hobie Verhulst.

The Tukkers were in the sixteenth minute on a 0-1-ahead by a goal by Jari Oosterwijk (header), but saw it Go Ahead in the 71st minute to come alongside, thanks to a hit from Thomas Verheijdt (header).

The results did not do justice to the balances on the field. FC Twente did in the second half barely a chance to create and was at the time of the 1-2 under heavy pressure.

FC Twente has the victory after thirty of the 38 speelrondes still a lead of eleven points on the closest pursuer Sparta Rotterdam, that earlier on Sunday in his own house, narrowly won by NEC: 1-0.

Go Ahead can by the defeat to focus on the play-offs for promotion to the Premier league. The Deventenaren already have a backlog of fifteen points on FC Twente.

Sparta wins thanks to a goal from Ache

Sparta had the victory at the NEC thanks to a goal from Ragnar Ache. The revitalised attacker was in the fortieth minute after good preparatory work from Royston Drenthe responsible for the only goal of the match.

That at 1-0 it remained, was a small miracle. There was three times the woodwork is hit. Laros Duarte, Ache (both Sparta), and Josef Kvida (NEC) met all the lat or the pole.

Later on Sunday is the loaded Limburg derby between number nine Roda JC and number ten MVV Maastricht on the program.

It is for Eric van der Luer’s first game as interim-coach of Roda JC. He followed at the beginning of this week, the fired Robert Miller.

Mondays are still the matches Jong Ajax-Jong FC Utrecht, Young AZ, Young PSV and the remainder of the Friday due to the dense fog abandoned match between Almere City-Top Oss (0-0) finished.
