The Belgian Tibeau Swinnen opened from a penalty kick the score for Helmond Sport, and also Nick de Louw and Arne Naudts scored. For Sparta it was not until the second defeat, after the loss in the openingsduel at FC Twente.
TOP Oss failed the first place to take over, since it also crashed. In Brabant, was Roda JC with a 5-0 much too strong. Mario was in English with two goals the most productive player. The time being Velzen, Nicky Souren and goalkeeper Nick Olij (own hit) did the rest.
Of the higher classified clubs experienced FC Twente perhaps the greatest embarrassment. The Enschedese formation lost, nota bene in Enschede, with 5-2 from Ajax. Twente, where Cristian Gonzalez, the red card was given, had lost three of the last four games.
Go Ahead Eagles and FC Den Bosch, together with Sparta at the top, come Monday, in action. With twelve points from five duels outdated Roda also TOP Oss at the head of the state of the second period.
