Roda JC have finally booked their first win of the season after a 1-0 win over Excelsior in Rotterdam.

exc-roda-jdjRoda went into the game rock bottom and without a goal in the Eredivisie since August. Unsurprisingly it was Excelsior who began the game on top but former Roda JC striker Mike van Duinen was particularly wasteful in front of goal, while Luigi Bruins shot wide just before the break.

Eight minutes into the second half Roda JC stunned the home side by taking the lead as David Boysen fired in his sides first goal in 596 league minutes. The home side then went looking for an equaliser but the visitors stood firm to lift themselves off bottom spot and above PEC Zwolle on goal difference.
