De Graafschap are edging closer to safety after a 3-1 win over ADO Den Haag.

degraf adoThe visitors made a quick start to the game and where ahead after only nine minutes with Mike Havenaar tapping in a Edouard Duplan corner from close range.

De Graafschap rallied after the early goal, but Bryan Smeets fired over from a good position, while Vincent Vermeij also wasted a glorious opportunity.

Eventually after 69 minutes the home side were level with Vermeij allowed too much time in the box to easily finish Smeets cross. Nine minutes later De Graafschap led as Karim Tarfi fired another Smeets cross past Martin Hansen.

In the 90th minute Cas Peters sealed the much needed victory for the Super-Boeren, which moves them within two points of second bottom Cambuur and only six from safety.
