Eredivisie wrap: PSV move clear

27 February 2012 02:16

PSV Eindhoven edged Eredivisie rivals Feyenoord 3-2 on Sunday to move two points clear at the top after AZ Alkmaar's draw.

Zakaria Labyad struck an 85th-minute winner after PSV had surrendered a 2-0 lead and allowed Feyenoord back into the game at Philips Stadion.

The hosts took the lead just before the break when captain Ola Toivonen finished from close-range after a Dries Mertens cross.

PSV doubled their lead in spectacular fashion on 66 minutes, with Mertens unleashing a powerful 30-yard effort past Feyenoord goalkeeper Erwin Mulder.

But Feyenoord fought their way back into the contest thanks to a brace from Guyon Fernandez.

The striker produced a clinical finish for his first, before completing his double after a goalmouth scramble in the 79th minute.

PSV were not to be denied, however, and Labyad fired into the top corner to restore his side's advantage.

Fred Rutten's men moved clear at the top after AZ Alkmaar could only manage a 3-3 draw at home to Heerenveen.

Jozy Altidore netted a brace for AZ, but they were behind on 81 minutes when Luciano Narsingh netted after Filip Duricic and Bas Dost had cancelled out the American striker's two efforts.

Erik Falkenburg struck in the 83rd minute to ensure AZ took a point in front of their home fans at AFAS Stadion.

Elsewhere, a Luuk de Jong goal saw third-placed Twente to a 1-0 win at home over Utrecht.

Ajax hammered lowly Excelsior 4-1 as Siem de Jong netted a brace to go with goals from Turkish attacker Aras Ozbiliz and Jan Vertonghen.

Excelsior were 2-1 down for the majority of the second half after Jurgen Mattheij pulled a goal back, but they were unable to find an equaliser.

Ajax shot-stopper Kenneth Vermeer kept his side ahead in the first half when he saved an Edwin de Graaf penalty in the 26th minute.
