PEC Zwolle came from behind to beat Roda JC 3-1 and maintain their hopes of finishing in the top seven.

bouy pecIn the run up to the game Ron Jans spoke of the importance of beating Roda JC if they are to reach the end of season European play-offs. However, his side got off to a poor start and found themselves deservedly behind going into half time as Marcos Gullón headed in a corner at the near post.

Four minutes into the second half PEC Zwolle equalised as Queensy Menig raced onto a long ball from Ouasim Bouy, before lifting his shot over Benjamin van Leer. Bouy then gave PEC Zwolle the lead with a measured finish on the edge of the box on 73 minutes, and soon after the midfielder headed in a corner to seal victory.

PEC Zwolle now move up to seventh place ahead of Vitesse and NEC, while Roda JC sit 14th.
