Mimoun Mahi had the home team in the 87th minute still 1-0. Two goals from the Dane, who was previously at FC Groningen played, contributed in Emmen the victory.
Trainer Dick Lukkien was the organisation of his team in good order. Emmen had the hands full with the Japanese attacker Ritsu Doan but to score he didn’t. Not even when Doan at 1-1 on a few yards of the goal the ball was free to blast off. He shot recklessly about.
The 31-year-old Pedersen, a quarter of an hour for time substitute, played between 2009 and 2012 for FC Groningen. Back in the stadium he left the Groningen supporters in a minor key behind. First, he was alert when the ball from the kick-off for his feet appeared. Then was he close touch and was the Emmen that the northern streekderby won.
FC Emmen climbs again to the wide side of average, with seventeen points from sixteen matches. FC Groningen is now under the dash (sixteenth) with three points less than in Emmen.
