Fifteen minutes later, it was 2-0 for the visitors with Tim Matavz, who was linked with a move away from the club recently, slotting in a second.

Twenty minutes from time, a long ball by Bryan Linssen set Matavz through on goal and he calmly slotted in his second of the game and Vitesse’s third.

Amadou Ciss pulled one back for Fortuna Sittard with a header but there was to be no comeback.

Vitesse sit sixth with the win while Fortuna are 13th.
