Cambuur have finally recorded their first win of the season after a 3-1 win over NEC Nijmegen.

ogbeche necAfter a staggering 20 league games without a victory Cambuur went into the game under severe pressure, and as second favourites against this season’s surprise package in NEC Nijmegen.

However from the start it was the hosts who dominated and after 20 minutes Bartholomew Ogbeche tapped in a corner at the back post to open the scoring.

Four minutes later NEC equalised when Xander Houtkoop deflected a corner into his own net, but the winger made up for his error early in the second half as he found Ogbeche again from a corner to restore the home side’s lead.

After an hour another delivery from Houtkoop, this time a free kick was deflected into his own net by Christian Santos to seal the three points for Cambuur.

With Twente beating De Graafschap the win isn’t enough to lift Cambuur from second bottom, but they are now only five points from safety. NEC sit 7th.
