Leaders PEC Zwolle have lost in the Keuken Kampioen Division for the first time since October. Where four months ago MVV was the culprit, Dick Schreuder’s team suffered a defeat (3-1) against ADO Den Haag on Friday night.

The damage for PEC remains limited. Number two Heracles Almelo came no further than 1-1 against Willem II, making the difference between PEC and Heracles six points.

Because the top two teams promote and number three Almere City drew 0-0 against Helmond Sport, PEC does not have to fear missing out on promotion to the premier league for the time being. The lead on number three is fourteen points.

ADO and PEC started the match furiously. Within twelve minutes, three goals had already been scored. Joey Sleegers and Xander Severina put Dick Advocaat’s team ahead 2-0, but Thomas van den Belt soon did something back on behalf of the Zwolle players.

After that, calm returned to The Hague for a while. PEC did get chances, but was not really able to make things difficult for ADO. Where PEC failed to score again, the home team did. Boy Kemper headed in the third goal a quarter of an hour before time.

The victory makes ADO the new leader of the second period after six games. ADO coach Dick Advocaat is now unbeaten eight league games in a row after his debut game against Almere City (4-1 loss), which was played in early December.

Heracles Almelo took the lead after just under half an hour through Antonio Satriano. Just before time, Willem II attacker Jizz Hornkamp made the equalizer.
