Review of all the action from week 16 of the Eerste Divisie with the division’s top two clashing.

eerste 3Dordrecht re-established a four point gap at the top of Eerste Divisie after they won the big game with second placed Sparta Rotterdam at the weekend. A large crowd turned up at The Castle to see if Sparta could wrestle top spot from the visitors but it was Dordrecht who were quickest out of the blocks & they raced in to a 3-0 half time lead. Former Sparta man Paul Gladon opened the scoring with a fine finish from the edge of the box, Rihairo Meulens scrambled in a second before Erixson Danso added a third with the goal of the game. Danso hit the bar early in the second half before Johan Voskamp & Mario Bilate pulled the hosts back into the game but Dordrecht held on & were left singing in the rain with their small contingent of travelling fans.

FC Eindhoven are just one point behind Sparta after they beat Achilles 29 3-1 at the Jan Louwers Stadion with De Graafschap & Willem II both two points behind FCE after wins at the weekend. De Graafschap condemned Ajax Jung to a seventh straight defeat after Anco Jansen & Piotr Parzyszek scored in a 2-1 win, the Pole notching his 14th goal in 15 starts. Willem II had a slightly more comfortable time at home to second bottom Almere City, running out 5-0 winners with Ruud Boymans among the scorers taking his tally to twelve for the season.

Helmond Sport lose ground after suffering their first defeat under Coach Mario Verlijsdonk as they were surprisingly beaten 3-1 at a Den Bosch side who have had a woeful time of late. Oss stay bottom but they will be pleased with a point at home to Excelsior who have been in top form of late, Oss are now just two points behind second bottom Almere City & third bottom Achilles 29 with Ajax Jong a point further ahead.

Fortuna Sittard take their unbeaten run to five games after a 2-0 home win over Emmen as do PSV Jong who beat MVV Maastricht 3-2 on Monday night in a thrilling encounter. Twente Jong secured a rare victory with Felicitano Zschusschen grabbing a double in a 3-0 win over a Telstar side who are rapidly slipping down the table & on Sunday Volendam & VVV Venlo shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw, Henk Veerman scoring four minutes from time to earn Volendam a point.
