Roda JC are still looking for their first win of the season after a 3-0 defeat at home to Heerenveen.

roda-heeThe home side had drawn three and lost two of their opening matches but any chance of finding their first win on Saturday was ruined after a disaster of a first half.

Sam Larsson fired a free kick into the net on eight minutes to give Heerenveen the lead before Roda JC were reduced to nine men before the break. Firstly on 34 minutes Abdul Ajagun saw his second yellow for a foul on Yuki Kobayashi and just before the break Christian Kum was also given his marching orders for his second yellow.

With a two-man advantage Heerenveen extended their lead on 68 minutes through Henk Veerman but the visitors also had a man sent off with Shay Facey shown red by Bas Nijhuis. However, a minute after the red Arber Zeneli sealed the victory with a lovely finish into the far corner.

The win lifts Heerenveen to 3rd while Roda JC are in trouble down in 17th place.
