NEC Nijmegen have recorded their first victory of the season after seeing off Heerenveen 2-1 in De Goffert stadion.

hee ne cThe home side took the lead just after the half-hour mark when Dario Dumic rose to head past Erwin Mulder, but Heerenveen quickly equalised through Pelle van Amersfoort who was given far too much time at the back post to find the net.

Just before the hour mark NEC restored their lead as Quincy Owusu-Abeyie sent Reagy Ofosu through on goal and the German forward made no mistake with his finish past Mulder.

Heerenveen went looking for an equaliser, but despite the introduction of Sam Larsson they failed to trouble the NEC defence, who held on comfortably to record their first win of the season. NEC now move up to 6th, while Heerenveen are 11th.
