Filip Kostic netted a brilliant injury time winner to give Groningen a 2-1 win over relegation threatened NAC Breda.

kostic bsfjsnThe main talking point of the first half came in the 40th minute when NAC Breda striker Stipe Perica had an effort cleared off the line by Hans Hateboer. The away side felt the ball had crossed the line, and replays are inconclusive.

Ten minutes into the second half Groningen were awarded a penalty for a foul on Filip Kostic, and Nick van der Velden made no mistake from the spot to make it 1-1.

NAC pushed for an equaliser and they found it on 72 minutes as Perica controlled a cross into the box on his chest before sliding the ball past Marco Bizot.

The game seemed to be heading for a draw but deep into injury time Filip Kostic skipped past a number of defenders before sending a fizzing drive into the bottom corner to win the game for the home side.

The three points mean Groningen are all but assured of a place in the play-offs for European football at the end of the season, while NAC are still only four points above the bottom three.
