EREDIVISIE: Heracles 0-1 SC Cambuur





Ten-man Heracles were undone with a late Michiel Hemmen goal to give SC Cambuur their first win of the season. A result that keeps the Almelo side rock bottom of the league and manager Jan de Jonge with his head in his hands after three defeats in three writes Kalkeren Kieran.

The first half was dominated by the visitors and when Heracles goalkeeper Dennis Telgenkamp fouled Cambuur’s Erik Bakker inside the box but the claims fell on deaf ears, in the opening minutes of the match. There was not a clear cut opportunity for the either of the teams in the first half.

The home side looked lacklustre in front of goal and failed to convert their chances and when Cambuur’s Lucas Bijker was yellow carded on the 23rd minute leading to a free kick awarded to the home side just outside the box, captain Mark-Jan Fledderus wasted the opportunity to the disappointment of the home crowd.

At half-time, the teams went into the dressing rooms goal-less and the away side continued to dominate possession in the opening minutes of the second period.

In the 67th minute, Fadh Aktaou received his second yellow card of the night and was shown a red and Heracles were reduced to ten men for the remaining 23 minutes of the match. The hosts went close in the 73rd minute but Leonard Nienhuis saved well for Cambuur. A ridiculous through ball gave Heracles a chance one-on-one with Nienhuis, however the keeper left his area and cleared the ball before the chance could really come to fruition.

There was five added minutes of stoppage time and Cambuur were awarded a corner and Michiel Hemmen leaped over all the Heracles defence and headed home the winning goal for the visiting side.

At the end of the game the home fans inside the Polman Stadion were obviously not happy and chanted for coach Jan de Jonge to leave the club.

EREDIVISIE: Vitesse 2-2 SC Cambuur





After coming back from a goal down, Vitesse were left to rue missed chances as Bartholomew Ogbeche rescued a point for Cambuur with just a minute to go on Saturday evening.

Cambuur got off to a dream start with a goal within the first ten minutes to silence the 13,967 inside the GelreDome. Striker Michiel Hemmen evaded two challenges before striking an effort at goal, which took a wicked deflection off Arnold Kruiswijk before looping over Piet Velthuizen’s head to make it 1-0.

However, the lead did not last long as Vitesse found an equaliser through a deflection of their own on 19 minutes. Marko Vejinovic passed to Zakaria Labyad just before the midfielder approached the area and the former Sporting Lisbon playmaker fired towards goal as the ball flicked up off Lucas Bijker’s challenge. The ball ended up flying over the top of Leonard Nienhuis’ as the keeper managed to get a palm to the ball, but unable to stop it to level the scores.

Before half-time, Vitesse had turned the game on its head when they were awarded a penalty on 36 minutes by referee Eric Braamhaar after Valeri Qazaishvili was fouled by Mohamed El Makrini in the box. Labyad stepped up as Nienhuis dived in the opposite direction, as Vitesse took the advantage into the interval.

Cambuur keeper Nienhuis kept his side in the match with second half efforts from Chelsea on-loan pairing Bertrand Traoré and Wallace denied by the stopper. Ukrainian substitute Denis Oliynyk worked well to get himself into the area and skipped two challenges with just eight minutes of time remaining. The summer signing from Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk tried to place the ball under Nienhuis to seal the win, but the keeper got a leg underneath the shot to parry away.

Missing chances sometimes comes back to haunt teams and that’s exactly what it did to hosts. Former Middlesbrough striker Bartholomew Ogbeche scored his first of the season to grab Cambuur a great away point. When Velthuizen failed to fully stop Martijn Barto’s effort from a Dijkstra corner, the Nigerian forward smashed home the rebound to make it 2-2 and send the 300 Cambuur supporters go wild.

Vitesse are now without a league win in an nine-game stretch, there worst record since 2008. Facing immense pressure, Peter Bosz will need to improve things and quick.
