De Graafschap shock Roda JC

Rydell Poepon and Soufian El Hassnaoui scored as De Graafschap caused an Eredivisie surprise by winning 2-0 against Roda JC in Kerkrade.

Mid-table Roda boasted a proud home record of eight wins from 11 matches, while De Graafschap stood bottom of the table due to an inability to win almost everywhere they have played this season.

Three victories from 21 games was their record, and just one success had come away from home, against relegation rivals VVV-Venlo. A fourth win lifts De Graafschap off the foot of the table, leaving Excelsior there.

Roda could have climbed to seventh with a win, with Vitesse Arnhem's defeat to RKC Waalwijk on Friday night followed by a 4-0 loss for eighth-placed FC Groningen at NEC Nijmegen.

The win ended a run of three straight losses for NEC and quickly punctured the optimism generated at Groningen by a 3-0 win over leaders PSV Eindhoven last time out.

Leroy George (21 and 63) was twice on target for NEC, while Lasse Schone's deflected effort and a tap-in on the line from John Goossens completed the rout.

NAC Breda climbed above ADO Den Haag by also winning 4-0, having failed to score a single league goal previously in February.

Santi Kolk scored twice for NAC, opening the scoring in the sixth minute then teeing up Kees Luijckx to double the lead after 10 minutes. Kolk added his second after the break and Eric Botteghin wrapped up the points in injury time.

The wins for NEC and NAC meant VVV-Venlo remained in the bottom three despite their 3-1 win at home to Heracles Almelo, their third straight victory.

Nwofor Uche scored twice for VVV before Lerin Duarte gave Heracles hope, but Robert Cullen's goal from Yanic Wildschut's assist ensured the win which leaves them two points behind Den Haag in a position of safety.
