Heracles Almelo recorded their second win of the season after seeing off Utrecht 4-1.

The hosts found themselves ahead in the second minute after an error from goalkeeper Thijmen Nijhuis, who missed a corner and that allowed Rai Vloet to net on the goalline.

Heracles remained in control and before the break it was 2-0 as Silvester van der Water headed over the hapless Nijhuis.

On the hour mark, Utrecht pulled one back through a Simon Gustafson penalty after Bart Ramselaar was brought down. However, Heracles restored their two goal lead a minute later as Vloet netting again.

Vloet then sealed the victory and his hat-trick in the 71st minute to condemn Utrecht to a poor defeat.

The victory means Heracles are now 9th in the table, while Utrecht are 8th.
