Against the run of play Feyenoord, who were without suspended top scorer Graziano Pelle,  took the lead in first half stoppage time as Jean Paul Boetius’s cross was finished off by Lex Immers.

Five minutes into the second half Boetius came close to doubling the lead, but he saw his header come back of the crossbar from six yards.

The second goal did eventually come with substitute striker Mitchell te Vrede heading in a excellent cross from Ruben Schaken.

Ramon Leeuwin saw an effort saved before the end for the hosts, while Te Vrede came close with another header for Feyenoord, who ended the match 2-0 winners.

After a run of two games without a win, Feyenoord coach Ronald Koeman will be relieved to get back to winning ways, and they climb to 4th in the table.
