Round up of all the action from round 15 of the Eerste Divisie as Dordrecht continue to dominate the league.

helmondPeriod 1 winners Dordrecht made it four wins from five games at the weekend with a crushing 5-0 win over struggling Den Bosch, Giovanni Korte was a constant thorn in the visitor’s side & weighed in with two goals taking his tally for the season to eleven. It was a week to forget for the visitors from ‘s-Hertogenbosch who six days earlier had been hit for seven at Sparta Rotterdam.

Sparta moved clear into second place with a last minute Steef Nieuwendaal winner at Emmen taking their unbeaten run to eight games, they sit four points behind Dordrecht with a game in hand which will be played on Tuesday at home to third bottom Achilles 29. De Graafschap who were third at the start of play welcomed fifth placed Eindhoven to De Vijvergberg but the visitors proved too strong on the day running out 3-1 winners as the sides swap league places. Helmond came from behind to beat Jong Ajax who included Niklas Moisander in their starting line up & the North Brabant based side who are now five games unbeaten since Mario Verlijsdonk took over as Coach move up to fourth place. The squad rotation system doesn’t seem to suit Jong Ajax who have now lost their last six games conceding 21 goals in the process.

Willem II slip to sixth place after a surprise loss at out of form Telstar, the Tilburg outfit have now only won one game of their last five. An even more surprising result occurred at De Geusselt where seven unbeaten MVV Maastricht, fresh from a KNVB Beker success over Eredivisie side Den Haag were beaten by bottom of the table Oss who had lost nine of their last ten outings, two goals from Go Ahead Eagles loanee Guyon Phillips scoring both goals in a 2-1 win. Oss remain bottom on ten points three behind Almere City who ended a run of three successive losses with a 1-1 draw at home to Fortuna Sittard. Excelsior continue their fine form following up a win at Eindhoven by beating Twente Jong 3-0, PSV Jong are now three unbeaten after scoring twice late on at VVV Venlo & Volendam cruised to a 2-0 win at Achilles 29 who travel to Sparta Rotterdam on Tuesday have lost their last three league games & suffered a 7-0 humiliation at AZ in the KNVB Beker.
