FC Volendam has won again after two draws in the first division. The leader was 1-0 too strong for Jong FC Utrecht in an unexciting match.
In the first hour there were only a few small chances to note, but after a double change of trainer Wim Jonk, the hunt for victory began in Utrecht. Substitute Achraf Douiri scored ten minutes before the end from a cross by Daryl Van Mieghem, after he had already missed a good chance,
FC Emmen climbed from fourth to third place after a 0-0 draw at Jong AZ. The team from Drenthe could have lost just like that. In the 66th minute goalkeeper Michael Brouwer had to make two saves within a few seconds and AZ’s effort landed on the crossbar.
Just before the final signal, Teun Bijleveld had a huge opportunity to win for Emmen and thus narrow the gap on leader Volendam, but AZ goalkeeper Beau Reus kept his team going.
The duel between mid-teams Jong PSV and NAC Breda also ended in a 0-0. Young Ajax did win, at home the team defeated Roda JC 2-1.
