As a result, the team of trainer Mike Snoei comes to 28 points from twelve duels. Almere City (27 out of 11) can take over first place again on Sunday, but should not lose on a visit to number four SC Cambuur.
De Graafschap took the lead after ten minutes in Dordrecht thanks to Mohamed Hamdaoui, who already became the match winner in the home game against NAC Breda (1-0) on Wednesday. The decision fell only twelve minutes before the end of a penalty from Ralf Seuntjens.
At Dordrecht, Ben Kinds was a trainer on the bench. He did the honors after the dismissal of Harry van den Ham earlier this week. With only five points from twelve games, the team is desolate at the bottom.
Of course, no public was welcome at the match, but there were five hundred stuffed animals in the stands. The sheep, which refers to the club’s nickname ‘Schapenkoppen’, are for sale for 20.20 euros. The proceeds go to the Children Cancer Free Foundation.
Later tonight, with NAC Breda-Telstar (6:45 PM) and Roda JC-MVV Maastricht (9:00 PM), two more games in the Kitchen Champion Division are scheduled.

NAC Breda climbed from fifth to third place. A goal from Jethro Mashart beat Telstar 1-0 in the Rat Verlegh Stadium. The substitute scored in the 68th minute, two minutes after entering the field.
NAC escaped a special equalizer deep in injury time. Telstar keeper Jasper Schendelaar came forward with a corner, but was unlucky that his header exploded on the crossbar.
NAC had to contend with many corona cases in recent weeks and partly as a result made a free fall in the rankings. After the first six games of the season were won, four of the five following games were defeated.
