Result: Feyenoord shocked by struggling Heracles

Goals from Bryan Linssen and Thomas Bruns see Heracles produce one of the shocks of the Eredivisie season as they beat Feyenoord 2-0 for a first win in eight games.

Heracles produced one of the shocks of the Eredivisie season so far by beating Feyenoord 2-0 this evening.

Goals from Bryan Linssen and Thomas Bruns at the end of each half earned their side a first win in eight and dented Feyenoord's hopes of pipping Ajax to second.

The visitors to Almelo were unusually passive and only registered one attempt during the opening 45 minutes, despite their 63% possession.

Heracles too were finding opportunities hard to come by but snuck in front on the stroke of the break as Linssen netted his first goal since November.

They held on to this lead amid increased Feyenoord pressure, but Fred Rutten's side were still struggling to work Heracles keeper Bram Castro as they found the target with just one of their 11 second-half shots.

The hosts secured an unlikely three points, which see them climb one place to 15th, five minutes from time when Linssen supplied Bruns for his fifth of the season, leaving Feyenoord still five points adrift of Ajax.
