AJAX FANS APPLAUDING STORY: Defending champions Ajax kept up the pressure at the top of the Dutch league on Saturday (December 8) with a 2-0 home win over Groningen. Before the kickoff there was an impeccably observed minute of silence for linesman Richard Nieuwenhuizen who died following an incident during a youth competition earlier this week. Nieuwenhuizen, 41, was officiating for the Buitenboys under-17 team, for whom his son plays. Three teenaged players, two aged 15 and one 16, will be charged with manslaughter, assault or public violence over the death, according to Dutch prosecutors. Ajax were awarded a penalty in the 13th minute when Virgil van Dijk brought down Derk Boerrigter but Siem de Jong's spot kick was well saved by the visiting goalkeeper Luciano da Silva, Boerrigter blasting his second attempt from the rebound high over the bar, The hosts found it hard going against a committed Groningen but three minutes before halftime they took the lead when Boerrigter spun away from his marker to convert from a Daley Blind cross. Ajax got another penalty after 51 minutes when Ricardo van Rhijn hit the bar with a swerving left footer from outside the area and Kees Kwakman pulled back de Jong as he attempted to capitalise on the rebound. Denmark's Lasse SchÃ¸ne made no mistake from the spot kick, sending the 'keeper the wrong way to make it 2-0. In the dying minutes Jody Lukoki's brilliant burst between two defenders ended with his shot bouncing to safety off the bar and there was almost a dream debut for teenaged substitute Lucas Andersen whose carefully placed shot came back off the post. The result leaves Ajax fourth, a point behind leaders Twente Enschede who play on Sunday at third placed PSV Eindhoven while second placed Vitesse Arnhem are at VVV-Venlo, also on Sunday.
