PEC Zwolle remains the favorite for the time being in the battle for the title in the Kitchen Champion Division. The formation of trainer Dick Schreuder also did not give the pursuers the opportunity to come closer on Friday. At Willem II, the leader triumphed 2-3.
Last week, PEC Zwolle had beaten FC Den Bosch with a record score, 13-0. Incidentally, Den Bosch suffered another major defeat, even without the now dismissed trainer Jack de Gier. VVV-Venlo defeated the team from Brabant 4-0.
After just under fifteen minutes, Haris Medunjanin put PEC Zwolle ahead. He shot in after being passed by Ryan Thomas. The Greek striker Apostolos Vellios made it 0-2, after being sent into the depth by Davy van den Berg.
Erik Schouten made it exciting again not much later, by heading in after a corner kick from Matthias Verreth. That happened after half an hour. More than 10 minutes before the end, Medunjanin made it 1-3. Michael de Leeuw then scored another goal for the Tilburgers.
PEC Zwolle and NAC Breda have taken over first place in the battle for the third period from Almere City FC, which could not play because the game against Jong FC Utrecht was cancelled. NAC won big against MVV Maastricht, 4-1. The Zwollenars are already in possession of a period title.
Almere is still the winner of the third period if it wins the make-up match against Jong FC Utrecht.
Heracles Almelo’s match, the number 2 of the regular standings, against Young AZ started more than 45 minutes later due to the weather conditions.
