Delano Burgzorg scored for the third game running as Heracles Almelo recorded a 1-0 win over Groningen.

Heracles have found form in recent weeks and they looked confident from the start as Ismail Azzaoui hit the bar with a volley. At the other end, Jorgen Strand Larsen was denied by the legs of Janis Blaswich.

In the 24th minute, Heracles opened the scoring with Burgzorg latching onto a long-ball before outwitting Sergio Padt with a strike into the corner. It was his third goal in three league games and four in all competitions.

Groningen made a number of changes in the break but they couldn’t find an equaliser despite chances for Strand Larsen.

Heracles held on for the win which has them 10th but level on points with Heerenveen. Groningen remains 6th.
