Almere City displaces NAC from the lead
Cambuur came in Leeuwarden thanks to two hits from Kallon in the final phase of the first half to 2-0 against Young
FC Utrecht. First the attacker worked a rebound from a free kick on the post by Mitchel Paulissen and just before half time he shot the ball into the far corner.
Michael Breij extended the margin shortly after the break, after which Kallon was again accurate in the 54th minute by tapping in a cross from Jamie Jacobs. In the final phase, Kallon made his fourth of the game by taking advantage of a moderate kick from goalkeeper Joey Houweling and Jeredy Hilterman and Tim Pieters save the honor for Jong Utrecht.
In Flevoland, Almere City escaped shortly after the break against Helmond Sport, because a goal by Jordy Thomassen was rejected due to offside. After that, ‘De Zwarte Schapen’ could make the difference.
Anass Ahannach came in in the 63rd minute and a minute later scored the ball over Helmond goalie Stijn van Gassel. Three minutes later, defender Delvechio Blackson fired in a rebound.

FC Dordrecht left the last place due to a win over Jong AZ: 2-0. After Young AZ defender Fons Gemmel got his second yellow card for handing out an elbow, Kevin Jansen shot the home team 1-0 with a dry bang just before half time. In the final minute, Julius Bliek determined the final score with a header.
TOP Oss is the new last player with a 3-0 defeat at MVV Maastricht. Joeri Schroijen scored twice on behalf of the Limburgers, for which Joy-Lance Mickels determined the final score. TOP played the last twenty minutes with ten men due to a red card for Lorenzo Piqué.
