Young Ajax also lost the third game of the new season in the Kitchen Champion Division on Monday evening. The team of trainer Mitchell van der Gaag went down against Young PSV at sports park De Toekomst: 1-2.
Young Ajax, which took office with Lassina Traoré and Jurgen Ekkelenkamp, among others, faced a 0-2 deficit after half an hour. Justin de Haas scored in the eighteenth minute with a free kick that changed direction and Cheick Touré widened the margin to two not much later.
In the injury time of the first half, Ekkelenkamp signed for the connection goal. Young Ajax played the last twenty minutes of the match with a man more because of the red card (twice yellow) of captain De Haas, but despite that surplus situation and a number of good chances in the final phase, it remained 1-2.
The downer for Jong Ajax was the failure of captain Quinten Timber, who limped to the dressing room in the 26th minute. Ekkelenkamp played the entire game for the home team and Traoré, who still made minutes in the main squad on Sunday, was replaced in the 68th minute.
Due to the narrow loss, Jong Ajax is still winless this season. The team from Amsterdam went down in the first games of the competition against Roda JC (0-4) and NEC (2-1).
