Richairo Zivkovic scored his first goal of the season to seal Emmen a 1-0 win over Fortuna Sittard.

The hosts were without Burat Yilmaz as Paul Gladon began up front. The forward came close to opening the scoring but he struck just wide, while he had another effort saved by Mickey van der Hart.

Emmen got a really big chance just before the break, but Richairo Zivkovic could only fire over the bar after receiving the ball in the box. The striker also came close straight after the break but was denied by the Fortuna goalkeeper.

In the 58th minute, Emmen did have the lead and it was Zivkovic, who fired in from a tight angle to net his first goal of the season and first Eredivisie strike in five years.

Emmen thought they had made it 2-0 when Mohamed Bouchouari had the ball in the net, but VAR ruled it offside.

Fortuna Sittard had chances before the end, but Emmen managed to hold on for the three points which takes them to 16th in the table. Fortuna Sittard is in 13th.
