ADO Den Haag maintained their comfortable position in mid-table with a 2-0 home win over Heracles Almelo to extend their unbeaten run to four games.
The hosts enjoyed a dream start when Mike van Duinen scored after just eight minutes and Lex Immers added the second in the final 10 minutes.
The visitors were the first to threaten when Willy Overtoom met Lerin Duarte's corner on the run, but fired wide of the left post.
But, instead of scoring, Overtoom was at fault as ADO went in front after the midfielder lost the ball at the back to Van Duinen, who was left with a clear run on goal and duly beat keeper Remko Pasveer.
Heracles almost shot themselves in the foot again when Jens Toornstra intercepted a wayward pass and sent Van Duinen away, but his angled shot flew wide.
The visitors looked to a response and Duarte's free-kick flew over, before ADO defender Kevin Visser almost gifted them an equaliser when his attempted clearance from Everton's corner hit the post.
Immers doubled ADO's lead in the 81st minute, receiving the ball from John Verhoek and sending a low shot into the right corner from just outside the area.
Immers had the ball in the net again three minutes later when he crashed a shot high into the net following Toornstra's free-kick, but it was ruled out for offside.
