Groningen move up to tenth

Michael De Leeuw's late strike inspired FC Groningen to move clear of NAC in the Eredivisie courtesy of a 1-0 away win on Friday night.

The match at the Rat Verlegh Stadion looked to be heading towards a stalemate until De Leeuw struck nine minutes from time to give visiting Groningen the three points.

It was their fourth win of the season and lifted them up to 10th in the league, three places and points above NAC.
