After nine matches without a win, NAC Breda have beaten Cambuur 2-1 at the Rat Verlegh Stadion to move six points clear of bottom place.

01 nac breNAC Breda last earned three points in the reverse fixture against Cambuur back on the 6th of December, while you would have to go back to August for their last victory at home. However two late goals from Adnane Tighadouini earned coach Robert Maaskant his first win in charge of the club.

The home side had the better of a quiet first half, but Mats Suentjens could only fire wide when well placed and Joeri de Kamps’s shot was well kept out by Leonard Nienhuis. Cambuur nearly went into the break in front, but Bartholomew Ogbeche shot against the post.

NAC finally had their deserved lead on 63 minutes when Demy de Zeeuw played Adnane Tighadouini through on goal and the winger curled his shot into the bottom corner. NAC defender Kenny van der Weg nearly gifted Cambuur an equaliser nine minutes later but his attempted clearance came back of his own post.

Four minutes before the end NAC Breda secured the win as Tighadouini cut inside on the left and again curled a wonderful shot into the corner for his second goal of the game. Ogbeche pulled a goal back in injury time, but NAC Breda held on.

NAC are now five points from safety and six points above Dordrecht, while Cambuur sit ninth.
