Ten-man Fortuna Sittard, coached by former Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh, lost 4-1 to current Dutch second division leaders VVV Venlo in a league game on Friday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
A hat-trick from Ralf Seuntjens and another strike from Vito van Crooy condemned Oliseh’s side to their second defeat after ten games and put an end to Fortuna Sittard’s six-game unbeaten run in the Eerste Divisie.
Emrah Bassan restored parity for Sittard eight minutes after Venlo had taken the lead. Vito van Crooy made it 2-1 in the 27th minute and five minutes afterwards Kamen Hadziev was sent off for a second bookable offence.
In the second half Seuntjens bagged a brace for Venlo as they extended their lead to six points at the top of the log with nine games to play.
Oliseh has now recorded four wins, four draws and two defeats since he took charge in January.
Fortuna Sittard will host NAC Breda in their next game on Tuesday.
At the Riwal Hoogwerkers Stadium in Holland, Kelechi Nwakali was in action for 90 minutes as MVV Maastricht defeated Dordrecht 1-0. It was the Nigerian youngster’s 22nd appearance for the sixth-placed Dutch second-tier club. He has scored once.
