eerste 2League leaders Dordrecht stayed at the top after recording a nervy 4-3 win over Telstar on Friday, with Giovanni Korte netting a double for the home side. With the score at 4-1 to Dordrecht heading into the last ten minutes, Shabir Isoufi, and Daryl van Mieghem ensured a nervous finale, but the hosts held on.

At the bottom, FC Oss continued their terrible start to the season, as they came away from Volendam with a 3-1 defeat, with Soufiane Laghmouchi scoring twice. Although Guyon Phillips pulled a goal back for the visitors, Damien Menzo made the points safe, before Oss midfielder Marcel van der Sloot was sent off.

In a game of three red cards, nine man MVV recorded an away win over ten man Fortuna Sittard, with Maic Sema scoring the only goal after 11 minutes.

FC Eindhoven climbed into the top 4 thanks to a 3-2 win over Den Bosch on Friday. The home side fell behind to a Furhgill Zeldenrust goal, but an Anthony van den Hurk double sandwiched with a Nayib Lagourieh strike gave them the three points. Den Bosh pulled a goal back through Erik Quekel, but could not find a equaliser.

The last game on Sunday saw VVV continue their stuttering start to the season, as they drew 2-2 away to Almere City. Jules Reimerink gave VVV the lead, before Sven Nieuwpoort, and Charles Dissels turned the game upside down before half time. In the second half the visitors equalised through Yuki Otsu.

Saturdays action began with in form Sparta Rotterdam climbing up to second, with a comfortable 3-0 win over De Graafschap. Pieter Langedijk opened the scoring, before a Johan Voskamp double made sure of the points.

Willem II dropped down to third after a 1-0 defeat away to FC Emmen, as Wout Weghorn struck in the second half, to raise the home side up to 5th.

Jong PSV started Sundays action away to Achilles 29 with the return of Luciano Narsingh making the headlines. However the home side stole the show despite falling 2-0 down in the first 25 minutes thanks to goals from Menno Koch, and Mohammed Rayhi. Achilles 29 rallied in the second half, and Freek Thoone scored a 90th minute winner, to give the hosts a 3-2 win after Kursad Surmeli, and a Thoone penalty had evened it up.

Excelsior saw off Jong Ajax 3-1 in Sundays other match, with Jeff Stans, and a double from Jordan Botaka giving the hosts all three points despite an own goal from Sander Fischer.

The final game of the weekend was a drab affair on Monday night which saw Jong Twente and Helmond Sport play out a 0-0 draw at the Grolsch Veste stadium.
