Zhang Yuning was the hero for Vitesse as his 91st minute goal gave the Arnhem side a 2-1 victory at Roda JC.

vit herfjfjfAfter a slow opening half hour Vitesse took the lead through Izzy Brown, who raced onto a long ball from Maikel van der Werff before firing into the top corner.

Brown missed a good chance to net his second just after the break, and on 59 minutes Roda JC, who hammered Heracles 5-0 last week, found an equaliser. Mike van Duinen firing a lovely shot into the far corner.

Roda JC then came close to taking the lead as Tom van Hyfte’s free kick found Jordy Buijs in the box, but the defenders header came back off the woodwork. Just after that chance Zhang Yuning came off the bench to replace Brown, and the striker headed Vitesse to victory in the 91st minute. He becomes the first ever Chinese player to net in the Eredivisie.

Vitesse now climb to fifth, while Roda JC sit 14th.
