Cambuur was able to give the earwash against Ajax last weekend a spot. The team from Leeuwarden was effective in the home game with Heracles Almelo, had luck every now and then and eventually won 2-1.
Trainer Henk de Jong gave the confidence to the same players who went down 9-0 in Johan Cruijff Arena, and after half an hour they repaid it. A fine combination ended in front of Michael Breijs feet, who was able to shoot from six feet or two and opened the score through the hands of goalkeeper Blaswich: 1-0.
In the five minutes that followed, Heracles should have reached an equal level. First it was Kaj Sierhuis who saw his rock hard header end on the bar and a little later Giacomo Quagliata was completely free on a meter or three of the goal, but incomprehensible sidelines he moved along with his right leg.
Immediately after half time, missing those opportunities was punished by Cambuur. Mees Hoedemakers striped the ball very nicely in the lower corner (2-0) and made the task for Heracles a lot more difficult. The formation of trainer Frank Wormuth was also clearly shocked by that countergoal and was no longer in the game.
It wasnt until the final phase that the guests from Almelo tried to make some more of it. Under the leadership of Rai Vloet there was opportunistic play and in minute 90, it actually became equally exciting. Sinan Bakis scored in from the scrimmage, but the points eventually didnt endanger Cambuur.
