Ajax hang on in the Dutch title race; Lokomotiv beat Dynamo in Moscow derby; Rubin held by Saturn; Fener beat Kayserispor

ADO Den Haag 0 – Ajax 1 (Eredivisie, April 4, 2010) Ajax’s faint hopes of title success were rescued by a dramatic injury time winner from Toby Alderweireld who cracked home a howitzer from the edge of the D that whizzed into the top corner with pace. Ajax were playing against 10-men by that point after home keeper Barry Ditewig saw red in a 75th minute clash with De Zeeuw. The win was Ajax’s 10th in a row.

Willem II 0 – PSV 1 (Eredivisie, April 4, 2010) An 82nd minute penalty from Balazs Dzsudzsak earned PSV the points and left the hosts in big relegation trouble.

Feyenoord 0 – NAC 0 (Eredivisie, April 4, 2010) Diego Biseswar, Roy Makaay and Sekou Cisse all got chances to break the deadlock, but NAC goalie Jelle ten Rouwelaar proved to be too much of an obstacle for the Feyenoord attackers and helped his team to a draw.

Heracles 2 – NEC 0 (Eredivisie, April 4, 2010) Samuel Armenteros was introduced early in the second half by Heracles and the substitute broke the deadlock 10 minutes from time before scoring his second four minutes later.

Dmitri Kombarov’s 88th minute penalty set up a tense finale but the home side held on.

Tomsk 2 – Spartak Moscow 2 (Russian Premier League, April 4, 2010) Sjarhej Karnilenka put Tomsk ahead with an early penalty, but Spartak hit back on the half hour when Weliton converted a right wing cross. A fine solo effort from Valeri Klimov restored the hosts’ lead minutes later, only for Spartak to equalise for a second time early in the second half when Silva was in the right place to mop up a loose rebound.

Terek Grozny 2 – Samara 0 (Russian Premier League, April 4, 2010) A first half double from Hektor Brackamonte earned Terek the three points.
