PSV suffer rare defeat

Jonathon Reis put PSV ahead after 15 minutes before Leonardo levelled after half an hour. However, parity existed for just three minutes as Balazs Dzsudzsak restored PSV's lead but the first-half scoring was not yet finished as Matthew Amoah headed home to equalise four minutes before the break. Ali Boussaboun gave the hosts the lead for the first time five minutes into the second half and, although they were reduced to 10 men for the final 15 minutes when Kees Luyckx was sent off for two bookings, Amoah got his second 11 minutes from time to collect an unlikely victory. It was NAC's seventh win of the season and saw them rise to ninth while PSV remain three points ahead of FC Twente who visit NEC Nijmegen tomorrow. The goals came thick and fast in the first half - Reis controlling the ball from Ola Toivonen and slotting home into the bottom right corner. Leonardo's equaliser involved Amoah who collected the ball from Anthony Lurling before laying it off to the Brazilian whose 20-yard shot went between keeper Andreas Isaksson's legs. Dzsudzsak scored with a left-footed shot into the right of the net before Amoah got his first of the night when he headed Lurling's cross home. Lurling was involved in the hosts' third goal as his cross from the right could only be cleared by Marcelo as far as Boussaboun, the Moroccan hitting the ball into the top left-hand corner with the outside of his right foot. However, NAC's task got harder when Luijckx was dismissed and Reis missed an open goal two minutes later. NAC took full advantage of the miss as Amoah claimed his second, and his side's fourth, when he ran into the area to unleash a shot into the bottom corner.
