Clint Leemans netted the only goal as VVV Venlo recorded a 1-0 win over bottom of the table Roda JC.

After a good start to the campaign, VVV have struggled in recent weeks, failing to win any of their last nine Eredivisie ties. Maurice Steijn’s side had the better of the first half but failed to really trouble Hidde Jurjus.

Early in the second half, Roda JC created the best chance of the game as Simon Gustafson set up Mikhail Rosheuvel in the box, but the winger fired into the side netting.

Fifteen minutes before time, VVV found the winning goal as the ball dropped to the feet of Clint Leemans and the midfielder slotted the ball past Jurjus for his seventh of the season.

The win lifts VVV up to 11th while Roda JC remain bottom.
