Eredivisie: Heracles 2 RKC Waalwijk 1

24 January 2014 21:52

RKC Waalwijk's resurgence was brought to an end with a 2-1 defeat at Heracles on Friday.

Despite sitting 15th in the Eredivisie, Erwin Koeman's men headed to Almelo unbeaten in six matches, having not lost since a 5-2 reverse at Heerenveen on November 8.

However, goals from Bryan Linssen and Mark Uth ensured that run came to an end, with Damiano Schet's reply proving no more than a consolation for Waalwijk.

Heracles, who would have been leapfrogged by RKC had they lost, climb from 13th to ninth in the table courtesy of a first win in four competitive games.

Linssen gave the hosts a deserved lead in the 41st minute, converting a rebound from close range after Arjan van Dijk had denied Ben Rienstra.

Heracles pulled further clear nine minutes after the break when Mikhael Rosheuvel's teasing right-wing cross left Mark Uth with the simplest of headers from two yards.

A deflected free-kick from Schet set up a tense finale, but RKC were unable to find a second goal.
