Cambuur put themselves back in the race for a top seven finish after a 1-0 win over Heracles.

camburh ddFive defeats in their last six matches had threatened to derail a promising season for Cambuur, but they got off to a strong start with Lucas Bijker forcing Bram Castro into a good save before Sander van de Streek hit the post.

Finally on 19 minutes Etienne Reijnen played an excellent through ball to Van de Streek, and the midfielder curled a lovely strike into the bottom corner.

After the break Heracles finally created a chance but Bryan Linssen’s header was well kept out by Leonard Nienhuis. Cambuur could have added to their score, but Erik Bakker and Mart Dijkstra sent shots wide from distance and Castro saved well by Daniel de Ridder.

Cambuur jump from tenth to ninth with the win and have a chance of earning a place in the European play-offs while Heracles remain 16th.
