Petrovic was confirmed as the new Willem II boss on Friday and his first game couldn’t have been more important. 17th placed Willlem II hosted 18th placed Emmen.

Both teams were short on confidence but it was Willem II who took the lead in the 37th minute as Mats Kohlert crossed for Che Nunnely to net.

Shortly after the break, Kohlert set up Kwasi Wriedt to double the lead and 2-0 is how the game ended.

Willem II now climbs above ADO Den Haag into 16th place. Emmen remains rock bottom.
