What was the great relief at Go Ahead Eagles after the 3-1 win over ADO Den Haag. With the win, the team of Hans de Koning left the last place, which is now owned by the residents of The Hague. Roda JC also seemed to be doing good business in the lower echelons of the Premier League, but lost visiting Heracles Almelo a 0-2 lead to 2-2. Therefore, the Limburg are still 17th and a home win against Go Ahead dire necessity. Is that going to work?
