VVV Venlo are into the top ten after Lennart Thy fired them to a 3-1 victory over Heracles Almelo.

The visitors got the first chance of the game but Vincent Vermeij couldn’t find the net from close range and on 17 minutes VVV took the lead. Lennart Thy found the bottom corner with a nice strike.

Ten minutes later, Tom Breukers was brought down in the box and Reuven Niemeijer equalised for Heracles from the penalty spot.

In the 54th minute, VVV regained their lead when Vito van Crooy set Thy through on goal and the striker netted his second from a difficult angle. Thy then completed his hat-trick and sealed VVV’s victory with fifteen minutes to go, with the German calmly slotting past Bram Castro when face-to-face with the goalkeeper.

The win lifts VVV up to 10th while Heracles are one place below them.
