Zwolle rally to see off Roda challenge

PEC Zwolle rallied from a goal down to a record a 3-1 victory over Eredivisie stragglers Roda JC at IJsseldelta Stadion on Friday evening.

Roda will be disappointed with the result, especially after claiming the lead in the closing stages of the first half.

Just when looked like the first half would end in stalemate, Roda claimed the lead four minutes from half-time. Jordy Buijs sent in a cross from a corner, and Marcos Gullón rose above his marker to head home from the left-hand side of the six-yard box.

However, the hosts produced a much-improved performance after the interval, Queensy Menig restoring parity on 49 minutes before turning provider for Ouasim Bouy, who gave Zwolle the lead on 73 minutes.

Roda were still reeling from the second goal when Bouy struck again five minutes later, heading home from close range to put the result beyond any doubt.
