Jong Ajax ruins promotional game De Graafschap, Go Ahead and Almere smell blood

The promotional festival of De Graafschap is not going on this Friday. On a visit to Jong Ajax De Superboeren came no further than a 1-1 draw. Competitors Go Ahead Eagles and Almere City won, making the tension cut in the Kitchen Champion Division.
Jong Ajax – De Graafschap 1-1The players of De Graafschap were waved before leaving for Amsterdam by a large group of supporters, who had gathered with a large load of tractors at De Vijverberg. On De Toekomst, the team of trainer Mike Snoei quickly got the lid on the nose. The game was mediocre and Kenneth Taylor put Ajax‘s promise team ahead of the start. He took the ball well in the county penalty area and passed Rody de Boer with a watched shot.
The Graafschap seemed to wake up after the opening hit, but the Superboeren had the necessary bad luck in the completion. Several times the aluminum was hit. After rest, De Graafschap recovered well. Ralf Seuntjens hit the pole, but saw how teammate Toine van Huizen did not take care of the 1-1 much later. The defender headed the ball well behind Daan Traveler.
The County then turned on, in search of the victory that would mean promotion to the Eredivisie. Elmo Lieptink hit the bar, but we didn’
t see a winning hit anymore. As a result, De Graafschap has to win Helmond Sport next week in order to promote the Eredivisie.
Jong FC Utrecht – Almere City 1-3Almere City increases the pressure on De Graafschap and can secretly hope for direct promotion to the Eredivisie. A visit to Jong FC Utrecht won 1-3. Already in the first half the away team took away from Jong Utrecht. Thomas Verheydt missed a penalty after ten minutes of play, but fifteen minutes later the ball went back to the dot. Now Daniรซl laid down Breedijk and he did not fail: 0-1.
Six minutes later, Almere doubled the lead. John Yeboah successfully completed a fantastic attack on the left. Young Utrecht-invalaller Odysseus Velanas immediately after rest brought the tension back with the 1-2, but about a quarter of an hour before Ilias Alhaft made the decision by making the 1-3.
Go Ahead Eagles – NEC 2-1Go Ahead Eagles also does good business: 2-1 was won by NEC, making direct promotion possible. After 25 minutes there was already a 2-0 stand on the scoreboard via Luuk Brouwers and Sam Hendriks, but it was definitely not an easy evening. Jordy Bruijn brought back the tension just before rest by shooting a penalty behind Jay Gorter.
After rest, NEC created the necessary opportunities, but thanks to a brilliant Gorter, Go Ahead managed to win the victory over the line. Go Ahead and Almere City now both have 74 points, two points less than De Graafschap.
