Goals from Kwasi Okyere Wriedt, Che Nunnely and Wesley Spieringhs helped Fred Grim’s men to an emphatic victory in Arnhem.

Saturday’s hosts picked up a point in their first away game before being beaten 3-1 in the return leg in January.
PEC Zwolle continued their unconvincing start to the season after losing 2-0 to newly promoted NEC at the de Goffert stadium on Friday.
Goals in the first half by strikers Ali Akman and Jonathan Okita sentenced Art Langelers team suffered a disappointing defeat in Nijmegen.
It is not surprising that the Blauwvingers are currently languishing in the relegation zone, only due to the goal difference in front of the bottom Cambuur.
